Kneading at low speed and, when the dough has absorbed the water, add lard a little at a time. Knead until you get a dough will be smooth and homogeneous. Put the dough on the worktop (I use a silicone mat, indispensable in the kitchen) and knead for 5 minutes by hand. Put the dough in a bowl covered with food film and store in the refrigerator for 12-24 hours. Or, if you prefer a rise in the day, put the dough in the oven with light and iu'd until it doubles: In this case, I recommend doubling the yeast doses indicated in the recipe.

Put almost in the center of the disc (the edges should be left free because you have to weld) a spoonful of drinkers, hearty cheese and cooked ham. Fold the crescent disc, as you can see in the photos and in the VIDEO TUTORIAL and press the edges firmly, so that they are sealed perfectly. It is important that they are sealed, otherwise the filling will come out during cooking.
