How to make it

  • Crust:
  • ------------------------------
  • Sift the flour, add 1/2 tsp salt and put it on the kneading board making a little nest
  • Pour enough buttermilk or a mix of half water and half sour cream into your "nest" and cut in with the knife, forming large crumb
  • Mix well and make the soft non-sticky dough.
  • Add water or flour if needed.
  • -
  • Form a ball and divide into 3.
  • -
  • Prepare your filling of choice
  • -
  • For each piece of dough:
  • roll out on a floured surface until form a thin round crust about 15-16 inches in diameter
  • put filling in the middle and spread to about 8 inches in diameter
  • fold the non-filled portions of the dough over the filling forming a pentagon - this is a traditional shape, but you can do octagons or triangles - whatever your sense of beauty will tell you.
  • Using your rolling pin, roll over the folded edges a few times to make them stick together (lightly)
  • -
  • Heat the oil in the frying pan over medium heat
  • Fry placinta pie folded side down first for about 3-4 minutes, turn over (you can use 2 spatulas or your hands if you are brave), then 3 minutes on the other side.
  • Let them cool a little and cut into 6-8 pieces, like pizza.
  • They make perfect party food.
  • Sweet filling pies could be sprinkled with confection sugar lightly.
