Ingredients for pastry
1250 gr of flour
1 ½ cups of olive oil
a little salt
1 tsp of lemon juice

Ingredients for filling
500 gr of cleaned  pumpkin
1 onion
1 ½ cups of cracked wheat
350 gr of raisins
1 tsp of cinnamon


Chop the pumpkin into pieces, sprinkle with salt and leave in a colander for 10-12 hours or overnight.

Prepare the pastry by combining all the ingredients and kneading; set aside for a while in the fridge.

Heat some oil in a pan, add the finely chopped onion and pumpkin pieces. Allow to cook for a little while.

Add the cracked wheat, raisins, nutmeg and a little sugar (depending on how sweet you want the filling to be); mix well. 

Roll out the pastry and cut into circles. Place a tablespoon of the filling in the center of each pastry circle.

Fold over and press the edges together. Place the pies on a greased tray and bake in a hot oven for 15-20 minutes.

Reduce heat and bake for a further 10 minutes, approximately.

Sprinkle with sugar and cinnamon, and serve.
