Pastechi Pastry Dough

READY IN: 1hr 15mins
Recipe by SilentCricket

Antillean meat turnover pastry...I posted the recipe for the filling separately. These are a real taste treat for my family and reminds us of our time living on the southern Caribbean island of Bonaire. There is time and effort involved, but the results are worth it! Prep time includes resting time for pastry.

Very nice flavorful pastry dough! I baked about half of these, and fried the others, and the baked ones turned out delicious as well. I am so glad you shared this recipe with us.
