- 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
- In a large bowl, combine the all-purpose flour and 1/2 teaspoon of salt.
- 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.
- 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.
- In a skillet, cook the ground beef over medium heat until browned. Remove any excess fat.
- 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.
- Stir in the beef broth, Worcestershire sauce, salt, black pepper, and dried thyme. Simmer for about 10 minutes, or until the mixture thickens.
- Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C).
- Roll out the chilled dough on a floured surface to about 1/8-inch thickness. Cut out circles using a round cutter.
- 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.
- Place the hand pies on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Brush the tops with a little beaten egg for a golden finish.
- Bake for 20-25 minutes, or until the hand pies are golden brown.
- Allow them to cool slightly before serving. Enjoy your savory hand pies!
