Instructions

  • If the mixture is too thick place it back in the microwave for another 45 seconds or until softened.
  • Using the wet hands or dough hook knead the mixture for 6 to 10 mins or the mixture is fully mixed.
  • Once mixed separate the doughs into 4 balls.
  • Smoothen the dough balls into the desired shape while making a small indent in the middle.
  • Now fill the space in the middle with your choice of ingredients and mold dough gently around the ingredients to close.
  • Coat it with egg wash.
  • Place the dough in a parchment paper and bake it for 20 to 35 minutes till it turns to a golden brown.

Notes

  • It is very easier to handle the dough with the wet hands. 
  • To get the desired pocket shape, press the ingredients into the dough in an empanada style folding. Close the edges by patting gently until you get the desired shape.
  • Xanthan gum makes the crust sturdier than you expect.
