In a medium frying pan on medium heat, add the Ground Beef and spices.
When the Ground Beef is almost browned, about 8 minutes, add the onion.
Cook until the Ground Beef is completely cooked through (160ºF) and the onoions are translucent.
Preheat the oven to 400ºF.
Cut circles out of the pie crust, they should be about 4-6 inches in diameter. You should get 12-14 circles. You can use a large cookie butter or biscuit cutter or just trace a drinking glass if you don’t have a cutter.
Divide the Ground Beef and cheese up evenly between the circles.
Fold the circles in half and press the edges together gently. Crimp them firmly with a fork.
Whisk the egg and water together. Brush it onto each beef hand pie.
Place the beef hand pies on a lined or greased sheet tray.
Bake for 20-25 minutes, until the tops are golden brown.
Serve with fresh cut veggies to make it a completely hand-held meal.
