Bayou you have access to the most wonderful meat pies in Cane River country.
I want to say Savuer or Bon Appetit ran the recipe for Laysonne's meatpies a few years ago....they have got it hands down.
What a hole in the wall and what a treasure..
I'll see if I can't find the recipe.

This is a must find!

Baking this time of year in the northeast is heaven on earth! The sweat factor goes way down!

looks like there's a loyal following of Natchitoches meat pies out there.

I actually graduated from the college in Natchitoches, and helped make the meat pies on occasion, just don't have a good recipe.

I'll also look in the "River Roads" cookbook, might be in there.

Thanks for all of your enthusiasm !!!

I can't stop trying to do research in finding information. (You know it's out there...)

I may not be a great cook, but I can help other people!!

I have ways of doing searches that must be more comprehensive than other people. That and I love this forum because of the smilies!! --->
