4 cups pastry flour 1 tablespoon dry yeast 1/3 cup warm water 2 tablespoons sugar 1 teaspoon salt 3/4 cup milk 1 egg 1/4 cup shortening
Steps in preparation:
Mix all the ingredients for the filling. To prepare the pastry: dissolve yeast in warm water, combine shortening, sugar, salt and milk; add unbeaten egg and soften yeast, add flour to a stiff dough. Knead dough on the floured board until smooth. Roll to about 1/4 inch thick. Cut into small rounds. Brush with butter. Place 2 table-spoons filling and cover with another round dough. Seal edges and brush with milk. Allow to rise until dough doubles in bulk, about 45 minutes. Bake at 400° F., 12 to 15 minutes.
