Components

For the dough

  • 250 gr. village flour
  • 250 gr. Farina flour
  • 200 ml of warm water
  • 50 ml sunflower oil
  • 100 ml vegetable butter, melted
  • ½ κ.γ. salt
  • 1 tbsp. granulated sugar
  • 1 tbsp. vinegar
  • ½ κ.γ. baking soda

For stuffing

  • 100 gr. seed oil
  • 150-200 gr. granulated sugar
  • 1 cinnamon
  • 1 pinch of clove powder
  • 1 pinch of vanilla

For the dough

  • In a large bowl put the flour, salt, baking soda, mastic, vegetable butter and sunflower oil and mix by hand until it becomes a mixture like crumbs. Let it rest for about 15 minutes
  • Then, make a puddle in the center and pour in the vinegar and crystal sugar and knead by hand or in the mixer with the hook, gradually adding lukewarm water, until it becomes an elastic, smooth dough that does not stick.
  • We shape it into a ball, wrap it with cling film and leave it in the fridge for at least 30-60 minutes to rest.

For stuffing

  • In a bowl, mix the sugar, vanilla, cinnamon and cloves.

For assembly

  • We take the dough and divide it into six balls.
  • We put flour on our workbench and place one ball on it. With the rolling pin we open each one in a thin round sheet.
  • Spread a little sunflower oil all over the surface with a brush and sprinkle it with a little filling.
  • Fold like an envelope (first fold one side, then the opposite side and then close the edges turning the dough inwards. If you want with the help of the rolling pin, spread the closed pie a little more to make it even thinner.
  • Finally, lightly grease the pies and bake them in a non-stick pan until they get a nice color on both sides.

To assemble

  • Divide the dough into 6 equal sized balls. In a lightly floured surface, roll each one out into a thin sheet.
  • Brush the surface with some oil and sprinkle with teaspoonful of filling.
  • Fold each corner inward to create a rectangular shape. Fold it in half and press on the edges to seal.
