DIRECTIONS

  • In a large bowl, dilute the yeast with the milk.
  • In another bowl, mix the flour, salt and melted margarine.
  • Now add this to the diluted yeast, slowly so as not to make any lumps.
  • Knead all together.
  • Continue kneading as you add the whole eggs, one by one.
  • Allow the dough to leaven in a warm place for 2 hours.
  • Divide the dough into three parts.
  • Roll out each part and cover the bottom of a greased baking tin with one of the parts.
  • Cover that with half of the meat.
  • Add another piece of pastry and again cover with meat.
  • Finish with the last piece of pastry.
  • Put in the oven for a short while.
  • The book says it should only go in the oven "to give it some consistence".
  • Remove and brush the top with the egg-yolk.
  • Place it again in a medium hot oven to bake.
