Turn the dough out on a floured board and knead lightly 20-25 times. Roll the dough out until it is 1/8 to 1/4 inch thick. Cut into 4-inch squares or rounds and place about 2 1/2 T. of the filling in the center of each. Fold each square or round over and seal (a little water to moisten helps here).
