Home made sweet pasties?

This one time, when I couldn't find anything sweet to eat, I took some of my pasty dough and filled it with jelly instead of savory filling and VOILA! Instant hit!

The basic pastie dough is real simple! Throw in about a cup of flour, 3/4 of a stick of butter, 2 teaspoons of baking powder. Cut the butter in or rub in with fingers until crumbly. Add some cold water to form a moist dough ball - not too sticky, but moveable! You can experiment with the amount of flour/butter/water to get it to a consistency that you like - each to their own!! ALSO! Add a little sugar if you want it a little less bland!

Pull off 6 lumps of pastry, roll into rounds, fill with desired filling, fold and then twist the edges to close. Glaze with an egg wash and bake until golden (usually on 300-350 degrees).

SHAZZAM!!
