Place a rack in the middle position, and preheat the oven to 375f (190c).

Cut the dough into 2.5-inch (6cm) circles.

Fold up the edges, and pinch to seal at the top (like a beggar’s purse).

Chef’s Tip: Dip your finger in some water, and run it around the edges of the dough circle. This will help you seal it up.

Place on a parchment-lined baking sheet.
