The BEST Ground Beef Stroganoff Squares!

It's pretty bold when you put the word 'best' into any subject line but I truly believe this is the best meat pie you will ever make. My dad used to make this for us when we were kids. Although circumstances later on no longer allowed him to cook like he used to I still make this recipe and think of him instantly. AND I still LOVE it, even when I make it and that's saying something because I always appreciate food more when it's made for me even though I LOVE to cook. It's just not the same experience for myself when I make it but like I said, I make this recipe for my family and I still love, love, love it. I also enjoy a good recipe using ground beef because it is so versatile and I always have it on hand. So on to the recipe!
