Mini Pork Pies
Ingredients
  • 12  ounces  pork loin, diced
  • 1/3  cup  chopped onion (1 small)
  • 2  cloves garlic, minced
  • 1  cup  chopped, peeled sweet potato
  • 3/4  cup  tomato sauce
  • 3  tablespoons  raisins
  • 1  teaspoon  ground chile pepper
  • 1/2  teaspoon  dry mustard
  • 1/2  teaspoon  ground cumin
  • 1/4  teaspoon  salt
  • 1 15  ounce package  rolled refrigerated unbaked piecrust (2 crusts)
  • 1  egg
  • 1  tablespoon  water
Directions

1. For filling, in a large nonstick skillet, cook pork, onion, and garlic over medium heat until pork is brown, using a wooden spoon to stir occasionally. Drain off fat. Stir sweet potato, tomato sauce, raisins, ground chile pepper, mustard, cumin, and the 1/4 teaspoon salt into pork mixture in skillet. Bring to boiling; reduce heat. Simmer, covered, for 10 to 12 minutes or until sweet potatoes are tender, stirring occasionally. Filling can be made several days ahead, covered, and refrigerated.

2. On a lightly floured surface, unroll piecrusts. Cut into 2-3/4-inch circles (about 14 circles). Press into tassie pans. Place a rounded teaspoon of filling in the center of each dough circle. Cut out small diamond shapes from the scraps of piecrust. Place in the center of filling. Can cover and chill until ready to bake.

3. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. In a small bowl place remaining egg and water; beat together using a fork. Brush egg mixture over edges of pies and diamonds. Bake 18 to 20 minutes or until golden brown. Serve warm.
