  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, cold and cubed
  • 1/4 cup ice water
  • 1 cup ground beef
  • 1/2 cup chopped onion
  • 1/2 cup diced carrots
  • 1/2 cup frozen peas
  • 1/2 cup beef broth
  • 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried thyme


  1. In a large bowl, combine the all-purpose flour and 1/2 teaspoon of salt.
  2. Add the cold, cubed unsalted butter to the flour mixture. Use a pastry cutter or your fingers to work the butter into the flour until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs.
  3. Sprinkle ice water over the mixture and stir until the dough comes together. Form the dough into a ball, wrap it in plastic wrap, and refrigerate it for at least 30 minutes.
  4. In a skillet, cook the ground beef over medium heat until browned. Remove any excess fat.
  5. Add the chopped onion, diced carrots, and frozen peas to the skillet with the ground beef. Cook for a few minutes until the vegetables start to soften.
  6. Stir in the beef broth, Worcestershire sauce, salt, black pepper, and dried thyme. Simmer for about 10 minutes, or until the mixture thickens.
  7. Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C).
  8. Roll out the chilled dough on a floured surface to about 1/8-inch thickness. Cut out circles using a round cutter.
  9. Place a spoonful of the meat and vegetable filling onto one half of each dough circle. Fold the other half over the filling to create a half-moon shape. Seal the edges by pressing with a fork.
  10. Place the hand pies on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Brush the tops with a little beaten egg for a golden finish.
  11. Bake for 20-25 minutes, or until the hand pies are golden brown.
  12. Allow them to cool slightly before serving. Enjoy your savory hand pies!
