2 T. butter

1/3 c milk
1 large egg white
1/2 tsp cumin seeds

Combine dry ingredients and butter in a bowl and rub with your
fingers until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Add the milk,

hands, pat dough into a ball, cover it in plastic wrap, and
refrigerate until ready to use or up to 1 hour.

round. Moisten edges of the rounds with water; fold plain half of
each round over the filling. Press edges together with a fork.

Arrange on a lightly oiled baking sheet. Bake at 400 degrees until
lightly browned, about 20 minutes.
