Bacon scratchings


all-purpose flour / plain flour

We thinly (2 mm) roll the dough loaf on the floured plate. The dough is fixed, but also flexible and supple, it´s a good work with it. By the mold for pies we cut out the rings.


In the middle of each ring we put the part of stuffling - seemly to the size of the ring. We put the ring into the mold for pies and we create the pie. We can create the pie also from the ring which we cut out by mug - we push the edge with a fork.
