Great recipe although if u don't cheat, it's takes some work. I think the prep. time should be lengthened to reflect this.
I used butter instead of shortening (no trans fats) and I too, like the other reviewers, had to deal with insanely sticky dough! I added so much flour that I ran out.
The key to filling the dough is to pile the filling more vertical than horizontal and to pull the stretchy dough up and over like a purse satchel.
I had to cook it in batches b/c one 9X13 inch pan only held 1/2 of the bierocks.
Turned out great! Very much like a German empanada.
(Also, my skillet was too small for all the ingredients so I transferred the filling to a soup pot and it worked fine.)
