   flour-shortening mixture and beat until well combined, about one
   minute. Form the dough into 6 balls, wrap in waxed paper and
   refrigerate overnight. FILLING Preheat the oven to 350 F. In a large
   bowl, combine the meats, vegetables and seasonings. With a knife,
   divide the mixture into six wedges, like a pie.
