Procedure for making the dough of your meat pie

1.Pour the flour in a bowl,  add baking powder and a pinch of salt and mix with your hand,  add margarine and mix with your hand
2.Pour water bit by bit and mix together till everything starts to become one and it no longer sticks to your hand.
3.If it appears you have poured too much water in the mixture,  sprinkle a little bit of flour little by little and mix together,  till it no longer sticks together and has formed a dough
4.Sprinkle some flour on your working surface and cut out some dough (little at a time) and roll out with a rolling pin.

5.Cut out a round shape with a meat pie cutter or any round object you have  maybe a plate or pot cover.

6.Place the round shape cut out dough in the meat pie cutter and put the meat pie filling in one side of the dough

7.Press together by allowing the two sides/opening of the meat pie cutter to meat. There you have your meat pie.
 8.If you are using a round object,  put the filling at one side of the cut out, allow the two sides of the dough to meet and press together with a fork.
9. Repeat step 4-7 till you no longer have any dough left
10. Brush your baking tray with some margarine and sprinkle a little bit of butter round it.
11. Arrange your meat pie and make sure there are enough space and one meat pie is not touching the other.
12. Remove the egg from shell and use to brush the meat pie top and sides with a small dough brush
13. Put meat pie's in the oven and bake on a medium heat. You can check every 10 minutes,  till it is done.

N:B

1.  If you are using a local oven,  make sure heat is set your oven at least 10 minutes before you bake your meat pie.
2. If you are using an electric oven,  make sure heat is set in your oven at least 7-5 minutes.
3. Whatever name you call your pie depends on the filling you are using. For example if you are using chicken or turkey or fish,  then it's either chicken pie,  turkey pie and fish pie.
4. If you are frying instead of baking meat pie,  add some amount of sugar to the dough while mixing.
