• 1/4 cup pine nuts
• 1 tsp. salt
• 1/4 tsp. pepper
Preparation

Pastry:
• Sift flour with salt and cut shortening in finely.

• Put a teaspoon of stuffing in the center of each pastry.
• Fold over in half and pinch edges together.
• Fry in deep fat until brown.
• Drain on absorbent paper.
• Some like them hot, some like them lukewarm.

• Add meat, nuts, salt and pepper.
• Fry until meat loses its pink color, stirring occasionally.
• Pour off excess fat.

Additional Notes
Its a good idea to have multiple pans going at one time to make the cook ... otherwise the 2 hours could turn into a half a day. :)
