Making the pancake pie

 Flour your hands and gather a pingpong size dough.

Dust with flour, roll into a ball and press it flat.

Using a large ice cream scoop, scoop about 1/4 cup of filling and place on top of the dough.

Filling should be double the size of the dough.  

Slowing push and tuck filling into the dough in a circular motion until filling is fully submerged into the dough.

Gather the open end of the dough to close the gap to enclose the filling into the dough.

Pinch excess dough on top and press it flat.  Dust with flour to prevent from sticking to your hands or surface.

In a lightly oiled low to medium heat pan, pan fry pancake pie both sides until golden brown.  

Serve hot and enjoy!
