English: A pasty , known in (West) Cornish dialect as tiddy/teddy oggy/oggin, and sometimes as pastie in the United States, is a filled pastry case, commonly associated with Cornwall, in the south west of England, UK. It differs from a pie as it is made by placing the filling on a flat pastry shape, usually a circle, and folding it to wrap the filling, crimping the edge to form a seal. The result is a raised semicircular package. The traditional Cornish pasty, which has Protected Geographical Indication (PGI) status in Europe, is filled with beef, sliced or diced potato, swede (also known as a rutabaga) and onion, and is baked. Pasties with many different fillings are made; some shops specialise in selling all sorts of pasties. For a pasty to be considered authentic, the filling ingredients must never be cooked before they are wrapped in the pastry casing.
