I, too, grew up in North Louisiana eating Natchitoches Meat Pies. I miss them so much! This recipe has potential as it captures the taste of the meat pies. I did, however, feel that the "crust" was lacking. First, there is no way I could get 15 meat pies from one store-bought pie crust recipe. The ones I bought (and I tried several) were much too crumbly to reshape into dough and reroll. Also, very little meat would fit in there without breaking the dough as it was too crumbly as a pie crust. Basically, I didn't get very far with this recipe, but I think with a different type of dough, it would work better. Maybe a homemade pie crust dough? I may try that next time, though I'm a little hesitant after all the work this time that produced no edible results to speak of.
That being said, the recipe has the potential to be a 5 star for me if I can tweak the dough issue. Thanks for trying! It gives me hope that it can be done!
