  2. NB: The dough should not be too thick and heavy, better add more flour when you form the pies.
  3. Take the dough out to the table coated with a bit of flour and roll into a sheet about 1/3-inch thick. Cut circles from the dough using a cup or a small plate as your shape. Take prepared circle put a teaspoon of the filling in the middle and bring the sides of the dough together to make a closed pie.
  4. Repeat with all circles, rolling the rest of the dough into a new sheet.
