1. Divide dough in half. Then in half again. Should make about 20 or 24 Pirojki depending on size. Keep dividing until you have equal sized lumps.
2. Roll out the lumps into dough circles.
3. Pinch sides together and put on a sprayed silicon mat seam side down. You can make triangle, or elongated pirojki. If you have different filling or different spices, different shapes will help you differentiate the different kinds.

5. Make sure they are not touching as they will puff up.
6. Bake for about 30 minutes.
