Thank you all for your advice. I am going to try the dough for the Egyptian Meat Pies the next time. You are right, Addie, I shouldn't have used yeast dough. MsMofet, the spinach pies look amazing. I am very intimidated by phyllo, so I avoid using it.

Don't be intimidated...just keep the portions you are not using under a moist towel. It is very simple to work with!

Thank you lyndalou. Like I said above I have used yeast dough also. Rise once then fill. You just need to use more filling than you think. BUT be sure you squeeze the spinach dry before using it in the recipe. I DON'T let them rise after I fill them. I put them right in the oven to bake.

PF is exactly right. You need to keep it covered. I cut it into the size I need then sandwich it between waxed paper THEN I put the waxed paper sandwich on a damp towel and fold the towel over the top so it is in a waxed paper and towel blanket. This picture shows the waxed paper and the towel under. After I remove some to use I fold it over the top over the leaves till I need to remove more.



It just takes some practice. You can "patch/mend" any tears with a little butter as "glue".

Lyndalou, depending on brand of course, but store bought dough I get, Rhodes, requaires pationts. You have to strache it, or roll it out and let it east, roll it out some more and let it rest again. You may have to do it 3-4 times. Also you do not need to let it rise.
