Dough for kalitsounia and pies

(for 20-30 kalitsounia or one pie)


1 kg flour for all uses
½ tsp. salt
2 tbsp. oil
water (enough so that the dough does not stick in your hands when kneading it)
½ water glass tsikoudia


Mix all the ingredients well, knead the dough with your hands and let it rise for 1-2 hours.

Kalitsounia: Roll out the pastry using a rolling pin. Make a big pastry sheet, ½ cm thick and cut it in the shape of a tea saucer.
Pies: Roll out a thicker pastry sheet and use it without cutting it.
