My mummy use to make this recipe when I was a kid, and to this day I find it just delicious. It is very easy and satisfying. Enjoy it with a fresh salad or just on its own. very good for a picnic. You can use any filling you and your family like, as long it is not to moist as it would make the dough to heavy.
