Yeast dough is an ideal base for a variety of baked goods. It makes especially delicious pies. But for the dough to rise and be fluffy, you need to follow the correct kneading technique.

The idea of making a simple yeast dough for pies was published on the Instagram page of a food blogger with the nickname grennysmith.

Method of preparation:

1. For the dough, pour dry yeast, sugar, and flour into warm milk, mix until smooth, cover the cup with a saucer, and leave for 15-20 minutes to activate the yeast and create a foamy "cap".

2. For the dough, add salt and sugar to the flour, pour in the melted butter at room temperature, break the eggs, add the dough, and knead the dough.

3. The dough should be soft and not sticky.

4. Close the lid, and put in a warm place to let the dough rise for about 1 hour.

5. For the filling, heat oil in a frying pan, add finely chopped onion and grated garlic, fry until soft.

6. Add the minced meat.

9. Put the finished dough on a cutting board, divide it into 12 pieces, form balls, and be sure to cover with a towel.

10. Roll out each piece of dough into a circle the size of a small saucer, put the filling inside, and form a pie.
