1/4 cup butter, softened
3/4 cup milk, warmed to about 100 degrees
2 1/4 tsp. yeast
1 tsp. sugar
3+ cups flour
1 lb ground lamb
3 medium potatoes, cubed
1/2 onion, diced
4 green onions, diced
3 cloves garlic, diced
1 Tbl. oil
1 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. pepper
1/2 tsp. dried turmeric
1/2 tsp. dried rosemary
1 egg, beaten

Prepare the dough: Combine butter, milk, yeast, and sugar in a large bowl. Let bubble about five minutes, then stir in flour. Mix; add more flour if necessary to make a pliable dough. Cover and let rise about 1 hour, until doubled.

Meanwhile, prepare the meat filling. Combine the lamb, potatoes, onion, green onion, garlic, oil, and spices in a medium bowl.

Preheat the oven to 325 degrees. Punch the dough down and cut into small pieces and roll into approximately 4″ rounds; fill with a tablespoon or two of meat filling. Pinch edges to seal. Place on cookie tray and brush with beaten egg. Once the tray is filled, bake for about 25 minutes or until golden. Enjoy!
