What is the next available shipping date for pasties?

By Robert - CO (Halork) on Monday, October 20, 2008 - 02:48 am:

First Post
At the moment, that is correct.

By mickill mouse (Ram4) on Monday, October 20, 2008 - 04:58 am:

For me the next shipping date would not be soon enough.LOL ;O))

Nothing so needs reforming as other people's habits.

A new Festival food store just opened down here. They have pasties in their deli counter. We bought 2 to give them a wife did.
They had sprinkled some green herbs on the crust. Not sure what kind of crust it was, but it sure made them taste terrible. Surely wasn't a pastie like mom used to make.
CC pasties are the best by far.

I just looked at 8:36 AM and the next date is Tuesday Oct. 21. Today is sold out. Thats a dangerous question.

Good morning! Talk about some great pictures.

I've been thinking of making pasties one of these days, but the weather just doens't cool down, which I'm not complaining about. However, I AM in the mood for pasties and I'm spoiled by my own. We've still had temps in the 50's and 60's this month. It's been wonderful!!!

Have a great day folks!

We found a place that makes pasties and we wanted to try them. We told the person- who owns the place- about Tony's in Laurium. She told us that is her cousin and she uses their recipe. I never thought to call Tony's to ask. They are just delicious. My boyfreind likes his with mustard and I like mine with ketchup. I also found a store that sells Tranery toast, too.

By John W Anderson (Wd8rth) on Monday, October 20, 2008 - 09:22 am:

Mickill mouse (Ram4): Eric from Toni's is also my cousin, He has one of the best pasties I have tryed. and I have tryed alot. Who was the lady you talk to about there recipe?? We where in the Keweenaw last month and returned with 3 dozen pasties and 2 dozen cookies.

mickill mouse: where is the place you got the pasties?

EVERYONE knows that the best place to get pasties, is to order them directly from Pasty Central. They're delivered right to your door, you don't even have to leave home to get them! Ordering information can be found -> HERE.

When we go up north, Toni's is the only place to get a good pasty. When Frakis was open in Calumet they had pasties, Aunt Sophies Pasties, and they were just like my mom use to make, but the new store did not continue to make them and I did not like their pasty.
One time my mom was talking about White Castle hamburgers and the frozen ones tasted terrible. When we went to visit her we took her a sack of them. She actually smelled them and ripped into them. I did not even have time to get my camera set up with the intent of taking some pictures of her. She was funny and I miss her.

Toni's prune tarts- To die for!

By John W Anderson (Wd8rth) on Monday, October 20, 2008 - 04:16 pm:

I know, try driving 100 miles with 36 fresh hot pasties and cookies in the back seat of your car. About the time we reach the road side park south of Covington Junction, we couldn't take it any more. We stopped, eat a warm pasties and then hit the road. Toni's oatmeal cookies are the best.

By Carole (Carole) on Monday, October 20, 2008 - 07:28 pm:

I tried Barbs Pasties, located in Clawson, a few years ago. They were good, and her cookies are just like Toni's. Turns out that Toni is (was) Barbs aunt. Anyway, I no longer live anywhere near there, so my manager from work, who lives in that neighborhood, brought me a dozen oatmeal coconut cookies from Barbs a few month ago. They were soooooooooooo good.
Now back to Toni's. The hot raspberry crumble with ice cream, OMG!!! yummo!!! And the prune tarts, date bars, saffron bread with thimbleberry jam on it. But the best is a warm iced molassas cookie. One in each hand as we are cruising down to the Harbor. Did this the last week in September. Miss it soooo much.

By mickill mouse (Ram4) on Monday, October 20, 2008 - 07:46 pm:

The one other thing my boyfriend misses is a sweet bread called-nitsu- I know I spelled it wrong. We would stop at Soumi Restaurant in Houghton and he would pick up 2 loaves before we would go to my moms. Between my mom and my boyfriend they could finish off one loaf in a day.
Now I have to go back to Barbs and try the cookies.

By Ken ja Mimi from da UP (Kenjamimi) on Monday, October 20, 2008 - 09:51 pm:

Hei mickill mouse, it's called 'nisu', cardamom bread. A few years ago, Carl Pellonpää (from the SUOMI KUTSUU program.) even baked some and brought it to the dances. Mmmm goood!

By mickill mouse (Ram4) on Tuesday, October 21, 2008 - 05:12 am:

I really have nothing against ordering the pasties, it is just easier to get them from where we get them. We live close to where we get them.

By Deb S. (Usedtobeayooper) on Tuesday, October 21, 2008 - 07:24 am:

Sorry guys, but Toni's best cookie is the peanut butter one. They are to die for.

If you really want a good pasty, try Connie's. They are delicious, and are located right by the Pamida and Pat's (I think it's Pat's) grocery store, so you don't have to travel any further.

They also have fresh baked goodies there. And their Italian bread is wonderful! Since Thurner's is no longer up and operating, it's nice to have that there.
