I'm only pulling a rabbit out of a hat as I'm sure many might and COULD disagree with me. But NC could be either Pecan pie or Chocolate Chess Pie.

Ciao,

In Alabama it has to be Fried Chicken with Biscuits & gravy; 'Mater sandwiches w/ lots of mayo;Peach Cobbler and homemade Peach Ice Cream. I guess I have to include Fried Catfish w/ Hushpuppies but as far as I'm concerned you can leave out the Catfish.
Ishbel, thanks for reminding me about the apple pie w/ a chunk of cheese. I grew up eating it that way and had forgotten how good it was.

P. S.
My husband has chastised me for forgetting Fried Green Tomatoes for Alabama. We live 10-15 miles from the Whistlestop, so it is unforgivable to leave them out. (If you're ever in town, don't bother. Theirs are not that good.)

www.foodtimeline.org has a section of official state foods not every state
has a pie. The only one I know is the New York State muffin is apple.
So I guess both of you are right. Each state does have an official food but not every state has an official pie.

Sounds like something my family would like - what size are your large circles (in inches?) and do you fold the dough over and press together to seal? Thanks !

Cut into 5-inch squares. Place 2 tablespoons of meat mixture on each square. Fold dough pocket and pinch together to seal well. I let them rise on a cookie sheet.
