This may need tinkering as Nan does not use a cookbook or measure ingredients...here goes:

3 cups flour
pinch of salt
teaspoon backing powder
at least 1 cup of shotening.

the filling is generally potatoes, steak and onions (eww).
My nan used hamburger in hers.

They're a trad food of Cornish miners and are eaten like a sandwich.
THEY WERE NOT INVENTED IN DEVON!

This is my Nan, she comes from Bodmin (Pendoggett), Cornwall, England

--------------------
Many times man lives and dies
Between his two eternities,
That of race and that of soul
And ancient Ireland knew it all.

" To a Scot, the past clings like sand to wet feet,
and is carried about as a burden.
The many ghosts are always a part of them, inescapable."
Geddes MacGregor

Hope, fear, false-joy, and trouble,
Are these four winds which daily toss this bubble,
His breath’s a vapour, and his life’s a span;
Tis glorious misery to be born a man.
~ from a Cornish gravestone

"Now I perceive the devil understands Welsh.”
"God defend me from that Welsh fairy,
Lest he transform me to a piece of cheese!”
William Shakespeare quotes

One can not profess to be of "GOD" and show intolerence and prejudice towards the beliefs of others.

Am fear nach gleidh na h–airm san t–sith, cha bhi iad aige ’n am a’ chogaidh.
He that keeps not his arms in time of peace will have none in time of war.

"We're all in this together , in the parking lot between faith and fear" ... O.C.M.S.

Religion has spoiled many a good man.
