Wanted to share this delicious and very special meat pie recipe . This was one of my mom’s New Year’s menu specials.

The special part for this dish was that magic good luck coin, that she would put inside that pie. This flaky,crispy and tasty meat pie was the most expected New Year dish for all of our guests , seemed like they all believed to the power of that “good luck coin”;

Hope you give this a try and Happy Holidays!
