Quick Meat and Vegetable Pie

2 cups all-purpose flour 500 mL
1 tsp. salt 5 mL
1/2 cup shortening 125 mL
1 egg, slightly beaten
2 tbsp. water 30 mL
2 tsp. lemon juice 10 mL


1 lb. lean ground beef 454g
1 medium onion, diced
10 oz. vegetable soup 284 mL
10 oz tomato soup 284 mL


Sift flour and salt into a medium-sized bowl. Cut in shortening with a fork or pastry blender until mixture is in even bits about the size of peas. Combine lemon juice, water and egg in a small bowl. Sprinkle over flour mixture, stirring with a fork until pastry holds together and can be gathered into a ball. Make 6 five inch double crust pies. Press shells using your Birds Hill Enterprises Pastry Press.


In a large skillet, fry hamburger and onions until brown. Spoon into pie shells, cover with top crusts and seal edges.
Bake at: 375° F (190° C) for 30 minutes
