Put yeast, sugar and 1/4 cup warm water into food processor. mix a bit, leave for 5 min till foamy. Add everything else except dry (flours and salt). pulse to mix well.
in another bowl, sift dry together. dump into processor and pulse to mix. slowly add cold water 1 tablespoon at a time pulsing well until dough forms up around the bowl.
turn out onto marble board or floured board. knead gently to ensure all is mixed well.
form the dough into a ball, transfer to an oiled (buttered) bowl, flip so topside is coated w/oil. cover with damp cloth and let rise in warm place for one hour. It doesn''t rise much just becomes soft and airy.
turn on oven to 450F/230C/gas mark 8
Roll into a log, cut into four equal parts. cover unused pieces and take one disk and cut into 6 pieces. this gives you 24 total. keep extra dough covered with your damp cloth.
on a dry marble surface, or lightly floured regular board, roll each piece of dough into 6-7" round. very thin, but this is a strong dough.
place 2-3 Tablespoons of filling on the bottom half of the round. fold the top over enclosing the filling and roll the bottom piece up around the top piece, pressing seriously to close. Be careful to seal well ... if you're not managing this well, use the press-with-fork-tines method. Don't be tempted to put in more, a small amount of filling works really well.
Transfer with a spatula to a perforated pizza pan. brush with beaten egg, beaten egg white, or milk. Bake for about 10 minutes until golden.
It's a good idea to put a catch pan on the rack underneath to catch drips if they occur.
transfer to a cooling rack and cool before serving.
filling should be pre-cooked, spicey, and not dripping. If you want a "Hot Pockets" consistency, use a fair amount of cheese.
I use this recipe when I'm making up easily-carried food for the racetrack or to pack in our backpacks when we go riding.
My typical filling is literally everything leftover in my fridge put into the food processor, adding together to about 3 cups, then add a good tablespoon of garlic, tablespoon of soy sauce, generous pepper, a teaspoon of caraway seeds and a teaspoon of celery seeds, some hot sauce, and about 2 cups of grated cheese.
make these up, freeze them on a flat cookie sheet and then transfer into a storage container for the freezer. pull them out individually and let them thaw in your backpack for later, or pop them in the toaster on a bagel setting and they are terrific. nice crispy crust and hot filling.
we like them with dip.
they are also good filled with sweets ... apple pie filling, cinnamon/sugar and cream cheese, chocolate pudding, etc.
