Ingredients You'll Need

Make a double-crust recipe of your favorite pastry. I like the Crisco recipe:
2 c flour
1 t salt
3/4 c Crisco that has been chilling in the freezer
4-8 T ice water
Stir together flour and salt. Chop in cold Crisco with a pastry blender; chop it up till mixture is roughly uniform coarse crumbs with a few pea-size crumbs. Sprinkle on half the water and mix with a fork. Add enough water so that dough holds together when pressed into a clump. Shape dough into a ball, divide in two, flatten each ball into a disk. Roll out dough into two circles. Cut into 4 or 5 inch diameter circles with a cereal bowl or a coffee can lid as your pattern.


Filling and sauce:

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Spoon 1/4 c of a good bottled mince onto the right side of a circle leaving a 3/4 inch edge. Fold over pastry circle so you have a half-moon shape. Crimp the edges well. Pop into the oven and bake until golden, maybe about 15 minutes. Serve warm from the oven with Honey-Butter Sauce:

1/2 c butter

1 c powdered sugar

3 T honey

2 T cream

Cook in double boiler slowly until sugar is disolved
