2 tablespoons Cold water
1 cup Chopped onion
6 tablespoons Butter or margarine
2 cups Mashed potatoes

Sift flour, baking powder & salt into a large bowl. Make a well in the flour mixture. Add eggs, oil & water. Mix. Gather dough into a ball & roll out on a lightly-floured surface to ⅛-inch thickness. Cut into 3-inch circles with a cookie cutter. Filling: Combine onion, butter, potatoes (instant mashed potatoes work fine), 1 egg, salt, nutmeg & pepper until well blended. Preheat oven to 375. Place a tablespoon of filling on half the pastry circles. Place remaining circles on top, pressing edges together. Combine remaining egg & milk. Brush tops of circles with egg-milk mixture, place pastries on greased baking sheet & bake for 35 minutes.

Makes about 20 pastries.
