Roll out pastry to desired thickness on a floured board, cut into rounds and fill with recipe below.  Brush the edges of the pastry with water.
Join the 2 edges together and crimp with the fingers. If desired, seal the joints by brushing with egg yolk.
Put pasties on a lightly greased baking tray and bake in a moderate oven (180′)  20 to 25 minutes.For a nice finish,brush the tops with beaten egg yolk about 5 minutes before taking them out of the oven.
This recipe makes 4 large pasties.
