Russian Egg and Onion Hand Pies are a great snack or an appetizer. Add a salad and some veggies and it's a full meal also. They are great to eat on the go and perfect to take to a picnic. Perfect way to use up all the eggs from Easter | ImageliciousRecipe for Universal No Knead Refrigerator Dough
egg wash to brush the pies(1 egg + 1 tablespoon of water whisked)
Prepare the Universal No Knead Refrigerator Dough. You'll need to use half to make 10 hand pies. You can use the rest for pizza.
Finely chop the onion and fry on medium heat in a little bit of oil until the onion is dark brown colour. No need to caramelize. Keep the heat medium and stir frequently. Will take about 10-15 minutes.
Chop the boiled eggs.
Mix the eggs, dill and onion. Add salt and pepper to taste.
Preheat the oven to 375F.
Divide the dough into 10 portions.
Roll each portion into about 6"x5" ovals. Sometimes it's easier to stretch the dough with hands after it was initially rolled a bit.
Place heaping spoons of the filling in the middle and close the edges around it, crimping them together and making an oval pastry.
Place on a baking sheet covered with parchment paper seam down.
Brush with egg wash.
Bake for about 20 minutes at 375F. Then increase temperature to 400F and bake for another 10 minutes. I like to lightly brush with oil at that point just to get a nice golden colour and sheen but it's not necessary.
You may have some filling left over. If so, add a bit of mayo to make an egg salad.
