I wanted an simple but good lunch to serve our family where 9 have to eat gluten free (Celiac Disease). I make two large pots of soup and a big batch of these buns - an easy way to feed a crowd!"

  • Bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer uncovered for 1 hour to reduce liquid.

  • For the dough - in small bowl mix warm water, 1 teaspoon sugar and the yeast. Let stand 10 minutes.
  • Combine dry ingredients in very large mixing bowl.
  • Cut in the butter with your mixer, pastry blender or your fingers until the flour mix looks like small crumbs.
  • Mix egg and water together with a fork and add to the dry ingredients, stirring well.
  • Knead the dough until it is uniform- it will be slightly sticky, consistency a bit like PlayDoh.
  • Form into golf ball sized balls and form with the Birds Hill Enterprises Pocket Pie Press or roll out dough and cut into 4" circles.
  • Place 1 heaping teaspoon filling on one side of circle. Fold over and crimp to seal.
  • Bake at 400 degrees for 15-20 minutes or until light brown.
  • These freeze well and can be heated in microwave or on a baking sheet in oven.
  • For the meat filling if you do not have caramelized onions you can use 2 envelopes onion soup mix and leave out the salt and pepper.
