For the dough
Preheat oven to 170 Celsius degrees.

Add water gradually, knead on medium speed until the dough comes together.
Roll on a lightly flour- dusted surface to a ½ cm thickness, cut into circles (7cm in diameter) using a ring.
Brush with egg wash. Put a small amount of the stuffing in the centre of each circle and fold one side over the filling, pinch the edges slightly with a fork tip to seal.
