It’s a pies kinda Friday

Decided to bake meat pies last night, keshik pies and zaatar pies tonight. We enjoy these as breakfast, snack lunch or dinner. Scroll for their mouthwatering recipes.

The dough

  • 3 cups white flour
  • 3 cups wheat flour
  • 1Tbsp sugar
  • 1tsp salt
  • 1 cup warm water
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup oil
  • 1 yeast packet

Mix yeast with one cup warm water and sugar. Let it rest 10-15 min until it rises.

Mix risen yeast with all ingredients and kneed. Cover and let it rest one hour.

Keshik mixture

  • Dry kishik from a middle Eastern store
  • Roasted Sesame seeds
  • Olive oil
  • Ketshup

The Ketchup is merely to provide a reddish color. Depending on how much you want to make. Add olive oil to keshik until all covered and spreadable but not runny. Add sesame seeds to taste and a couple of Tablespoons of Ketchup.

Beef mixture

  • 1 lb ground beef
  • 2 medium size tomatoes sliced small
  • one medium onion sliced small
  • salt
  • pepper
  • Optional: 1 TBSP Pomegranate Molasses


  • Zaatar mixture from a middle Eastern store. Lebanese zaatar is made with dried oregano, dried sumac, sesame seeds, salt.
  • Olive oil

Shape into circles, spread the mixtures, bake at 400F until done and enjoy!
