Shepherd's Pie Hand Pies #SundaySupper

This week's theme for #SundaySupper is PIE!  You know it is pie month, as we've celebrated here at Our Good Life in a couple of different ways!  I love hand pies, and have a board on Pinterest dedicated to them!

I make the filling for a shepherd's pie and encase it into puff pastry that is sealed around the edges with a fork.  Sometimes the filling leaks through, but that just makes it more delicious!  Instead of putting the mashed potatoes in the filling, I serve them on the side.  These neat mashed potatoes will be featured on the blog on March 6.  Come and check them out!

    Don't you just love puff pastry? It's a great idea to serve the potatoes on the side too!

  3. Using puff pastry makes these a breeze to put together! These hand pies would be a hit at my house!!
