Ajeen Fatayer (Savory Pie Dough)
Pies & Pastries
active dry yeast
Place water and sugar in large bowl. Add yeast, stirring gently.
Allow to rest for 5 minutes. Add oil, salt and egg. Fold in flour
gradually. Depending on the brand of flour, use your judgement to
decide if more or less water is required. Knead until all flour leaves
the edges of the bowl and dough is smooth. Pat a little butter or oil
over dough to prevent crusting. Cover with plastic sheet, then towel.
Let rest in a warm place for 30-40 minutes.
