  1. The dough
  2. Mix the flour and the baking powder. Add the melted lard, the milk and the water. Mix well until you make a soft non sticky mass. Let it rest for ½ hour, then divide in little ball portions to stretch easily.
  3. The meat
  4. Chop the onion, put in the pan and let it golden a bit, add the meat and let it cook a bit but not too much.
  5. In each disk (from the balls) add some fillomh, an olive, half an egg, some raisings and close.
  6. Sometimes is good to close with some water or battered egg (to assure it doesn't open)
  7. Pinch it a bit to assure the air flows in the oven. (make some small holes)
  8. Put them in the oven until the have a golden color. (20 to 30 minutes)
