2 cups flour
1/2 tablespoon baking soda
1/4 cup sugar
Pinch of salt
About 1/2 cup grated cold butter
About 1/4-1/2 cup milk
Combine the dry ingredients, then add the grated butter and mix with your hands till it's all crumbly. Combine the egg and milk and add to the flour mixture and stir in. Start with less milk and add more if you need it. Pull it into a dough and knead a bit, adding a little flour to make a soft dough. Cover and put in the fridge for 30 minutes, then roll out, add a filling, pinch closed, and bake at 375 till golden.
I still love coconut for these, but the number one family favorite filling is raspberry jam with labnah or cream cheese.
