How to Make Chita Pie Dough:1.
Prepare the dough: Heat up a bowl or saucepan and whisk together all the ingredients: milk, cream, sugar, egg, salt, baking powder, and baking soda.2.
Let it rest for 15 to 30 minutes, or until the mixture is soft and foamy.3.
Add the butter and whisk to combine.4.
When the mixture begins to stiffen, gently add in the flour, 1 tablespoon at a time, until it comes together.
Add more flour as needed to create the dough consistency.5.
Form the dough into a ball and set aside.6.
In a small bowl, whisk together the egg and flour, then add the flour mixture to the egg mixture.
The dough will begin to stick together.7.
Divide the dough between two large bowls.8.
In the second bowl, place a scoop of filling in the center and fold the dough over to form a ball.9.
Add 1 tablespoon of chita powder and a pinch of salt to the chitta mixture, and sprinkle with a small amount of ground cinnamon.10.
Transfer the dough balls to a large bowl and set them aside.11.
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit.12.
Roll the dough ball into 1/4-inch thick balls, about 1 1/2 inches in diameter, and place them on a parchment-lined baking sheet.13.
Bake for about 15 to 20 minutes, until the filling is golden and bubbly.14.
Remove from the oven and allow to cool for 10 minutes before slicing into 8 pieces.15.
Enjoy the chitas with a side of chitas or chitras.
