3/4 C Shortening
1/2 C Sugar
3 C Flour
Cold Water

3 lbs hamburger (raw)
5-6 russet potatoes (pealed and cubed)
Salt and Pepper

Mix shortening, sugar, and flour in a mixer, add cold water until dough sticks together
but not soggy. Divide the dough into 3 equal parts. Roll out each section until it is
about as thick as pie crust and put onto cookie sheet (one at a time)

Into each crust put in about 1 lb of hamburger topped with onion and salt and pepper,
add potatoes to the top of the oniona and salt and pepper again. Fold the crust around
the meat and potatoes and repeat the process with the other two sections of dough.

Bake at 350 for 45 min.
