I was born and raised in Sault Ste. Marie, Michigan, and these were a family staple! When I was 13, my parents moved us down here to Illinois, where the term "Pastie" illicits very strange looks from others. lol Since we moved, my family still can not live without these. Granted, you can buy them frozen and boxed now at Gordons Food Center, but they are SOOO much better homemade. Twice a year all the women in our family here get together to make pasties for our families. It is usually an all day event! Because these freeze so incredibly well, we make enough to stock all of our deep freezers for the next several months. Wrapped and stored individually, these meat pies are a great quick meal, whether reheated in the oven (preferred) or the microwave. Great served with extra melted butter on top and ketchup, though others in my family prefer a brown gravy instead.
