Dough and pie
In a mixing bowl, mix the flour, salt and butter until it forms crumbs. Slowly add eggs and milk to join the dough. It is possible, that the dough has a sticky consistency; In that case, you should add flour slowly until you get a dough that does not stick to the edges of the container.
Then, go to the floured table and divide the dough into two parts, not the same. One should be 2/3 and the other 1/3. Form two spheres with the mass and with a roller extend them. Spread the larger dough in a circle and move to a greased medium round refractory mold. Cover with cold filling. Spread the remaining paste and cover the cake. Cut the edges and varnish with egg.
Bake at 350 F for 45 to 50 minutes. Let cool for a few minutes before leaving so that the filling fits more.
