4I use a med sized glass to cut the dough into circles. Then spread out with fingers a bit more.

Add about a teaspoon of filling, fold over and crimp edges with a fork.

5Place on a baking sheet., I lined mine with parchment paper.

Brush each pie with egg yolk. Sprinkle with some sugar if you like. I sometimes drizzle a glaze on them also, after cooling a few minutes

Bake in a 400 degree oven for 15 - 20 minutes or until golden brown.
