Need to get this down before I forget...

No pics for this post, just a quickie so I don't forget what I did for this recipe...

Spinach pies

1 lb frozen spinach
1 cup raw long-grain rice
couple tablespoons each olive oil, lemon juice
1 small onion (chopped)
seasonings: pepper, basil (lots), allspice

2 cups flour
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon sugar
1/2 teaspoon garlic salt
seasonings: pepper, basil, parsley, onion powder, thyme, cumin (not so much)
2 Tablespoons butter
2/3 cup water
flour for rolling

Make the dough while the spinach thaws in the microwave. Let the dough rest, covered. Cook the rice until almost done, just a little chewy. Chop the onion. Drain the spinach really well, squeezing out the extra juice. Combine all the filling ingredients and set aside.

Make the dough into twelve small balls and roll out one at a time. Place onto lightly greased or aluminum foil covered cookie sheet. Place one serving-spoon size dollop of filling on each round; pull edges up into triangle shape and press together, leaving opening in center for steam to escape. Bake at 400 degrees until lightly browned on edges.
