Instructions to make Kreatotourta (meat pie) from Chania:

  1. Start the preparation from the previous day..

Add finely chopped spearmint, pepper and cinnamon once more. Pour 2-3 spoonfuls of meat stock in the filling so that it doesn't dry up..
  10. Roll out the rest of the dough, cover the filling and seal both the bottom and top dough together, braiding them..
