Submitted by: WAZAROO

Introduction

These are very popular in Armenia, my home country so I thought I'd share since we eat them frequently. These are very popular in Armenia, my home country so I thought I'd share since we eat them frequently.

    1/4 cup tomato paste
    1/2 onion, finely chopped
    Juice of 1 lemon

Directions

Divide dough in two and roll out on a floured surface to about 1/8-inch thickness. Cut 3-inch rounds, stacking them between layers of wax paper. Roll and cut remaining dough.

Combine all ingredients except lemon wedges in a bowl.

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Spread a heaping tablespoon of meat mixture on each dough round, spreading until it's a very thin layer, all the way to the edge: meat mixture will shrink during baking. (Once assembled, pies can be frozen, stacked in wax paper, and then baked directly from freezer.)

Arrange pies on 2 lightly oiled baking sheets. Bake 20 minutes, rotating pans halfway through baking. Serve hot, squeezing lemon on top.
