“I love artichokes and I found a canned one (easy). My grandmather taught me how to make the dough. In Brazil we call this dough as “massa podre”. The sharing idea came only after the pie was being eated!”

    How to make the Pie Crust: in a big bowl, add the flower sifted, add the salt, the sugar and the baking powder. Mix it. Add the butter and the egg. Mix it with hands. Slowly keep adding the water until it gets the point, without sticking in the hands. Blow the dough. As it is whole-wheat flower, the dough can be tougher than usual. In this case, you can take a small bownl and mix cornflower with cold water, and just wet your hands (or fingers) on it and again blow the dough for few more minutes.
