Hand Pies

I got a new magazine for free from reading another one-Southern Living. And what I got was the all recipe book of favorite fall recipes. I was so excited! This was the first recipe I decided to make. And not going to lie, I got lazy. This recipe is for 18 appetizer like hand pies. I really only made two large "pot pie" like items. But the potatoes really added to them (I make killer mashed potatoes) along with the gravy. So instead of being a little creamy pot pie, its a pot pie with mashed potatoes served with gravy on the side. So awesome (3.5/5)!
