In a 12-inch nonstick skillet over moderate heat, cook the ground pork with the onions, garlic, savory, salt, allspice, and pepper, stirring frequently and breaking up lumps with a fork, until pork is no longer pink, approximately 5 to 7 minutes. Sprinkle with flour and cook, stirring, until thickened, 3 to 4 minutes.
Remove from stove and let filling cool completely. NOTE: Pork Filling can be made one (1) day ahead and chilled, covered. Bring to room temperature before using.
Make the Pastry (see below) while the Pork Filling cools. Put oven rack in middle position and preheat oven to 425 degrees F.
Turn out dough onto a lightly-floured surface and gently knead 10 to 12 times. Roll out dough on lightly-floured surface with a floured rolling pin into a rough 18-inch round (1/8 inch thick), dusting with just enough additional flour to keep dough from sticking. Cut out 24 rounds with a 3-inch cutter and 24 leaves with leaf-shaped cutter (you can use any cookie cutter design that you desire). Make decorative lines on leaves with tip of a sharp paring knife.
Fit each round into a muffin cup and fill with a rounded tablespoon of filling. Arrange leaves on filling.
Bake pies until crusts are golden, 15 to 17 minutes. Lift pies out of muffin cups and transfer to a rack. Cool to warm, about 15 minutes.
Prepare Ahead of Time: Pies can be assembled and baked 6 hours ahead and cooled, uncovered, then chilled, uncovered. Either serve at room temperature or reheat in a preheated 250 degrees F. oven until warm, about 15 minutes.
Freezing: Freeze pork pies, uncovered, in single layer on baking sheets. Do not thaw before reheating. To reheat, preheat oven to 425 degrees F. Bake frozen tourties in a single layer on a baking sheet for about 20 minutes or until sizzling.
Makes 24 hors d'oeuvres.
In a large bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, and salt. Blend in shortening and butter with a pastry blender or your fingertips until mixture resembles coarse meal. Add milk and stir with a fork just until a dough forms.
