Char Siu Pie (Chinese Barbecue Pork Pie)

 The Chinese new year is coming ^^, so I think we should have some recipe that we can use in the festival.


And I think about making Chinese style pie. I think it's easier to make this kind of dough. You make 2 kinds of the dough, the inner and outer, then roll it together to create layer. It's a lot easier than making puff pastry, haha. Because this is savoury Chinese style pie, I don't want to use butter, shortening is a better choice as it has no identical fragrance. As always, I use non-hydrogenated rice bran oil shortening because it's better for my health ^^.
For the filling, you can make Char Siu (Chinese Barbecue Pork) by yourself (follow this method and recipe) or buying it (easier way). But It's not hard to make and you can serve it with rice or noodle, so I really recommend you to make it. 
This recipe will make 12 small pies, and I found out that it's not enough so double the recipe will make your family happy too.

Cook until thicken and let the fill cool before using.

 Roll the outer dough.


 Place the inner dough in a center.

 Roll with a rolling pin.


 Roll into a cylinder shape.


 Roll with the rolling pin.
And roll into a cylinder shape again.
 Roll with a rolling pin into a rectangular (about 12x8cm )


 Brush the side with water, and place 14g of the filling into the center.


 Seal both sides by pressing the fork.

Brush with pie with egg wash before putting in the oven.
