Ingredients

For the filling

  • 6 eggs (hard boiled)
  • 1/2 cup chopped dill
  • 2 medium onions
  • oil to fry onion
  • salt, pepper to taste
  • egg wash to brush the pies (1 egg + 1 tablespoon of water whisked)

Instructions

  • 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.

Notes

You may have some filling left over. If so, add a bit of mayo to make an egg salad.
