Still feel like Pastry?

As promised yesterday, I want to show you just how versatile this pastry is.(see previous post)Today I made a simple ground beef filling and I played around with different sizes and serving suggestions. I am sure you will have even better ideas.
I forgot to tell our yesterday that you can make your little pies or tarts ahead of time and freeze them. When needed, pop them in a hot oven (straight from the freezer) and bake slightly longer.

Then I was tagged for a MEME by two wonderful ladies from More than burnt toast and Passionate Baker and my answers are long overdue. So here goes.
