Potato Pie

Potato Pie

This is a takeoff  from the delicious potato knishes that you buy in any New York deli.

William Sonoma sells this great pie maker.

I make everything in it and today I made the potato pies.

One package of frozen empanada puff pastry

Five cups of mashed potato. Leftover potatoes are stiffer and drier so they  make a better filling.

Two large chopped onions

Two minced garlic cloves

One teaspoon of black pepper.

Salt to taste

Three tablespoons of butter

Saute the butter,garlic and onions till the onions are soft and light brown.

Mix them into the mashed potatoes and taste to see if you need more salt.

Add the pepper and combine well.

Heat the pie maker and place  one circle of dough into each well.

Fill each well with about a cup of the potato mixture.

Top with another circle of dough.

Cook until the crust in nice and brown.

Serve right away or put on a cookie sheet to heat up later.

I have frozen these pies and they are still pretty good.

A true New Yorker eats these with mustard.

My husband used to dip them in ketchup.

Something different then regular mashed potatoes and much prettier.
