4. Combine the unbeaten egg and milk, add the orange rind and mix to a dough.
5. Turn onto a lightly floured board and gently knead. Divide dough in half. Pat or roll each half into a 23cms/9″ round. Spread filling over half of each round.
6. Fold each dough round in half over filling. Using a sharp knife cut each half round into 6 wedges and place on prepared tin.
7. Brush top with beaten egg and sprinkle with granulated sugar.

Orange rind can be replaced with lemon rind. Because of the filling these do not need butter or jam!
