That's the closest way I can think to spell it. Arab meat pies, modified by my mom. Real mid-east meets mid-west kind of food.

4 onions
1 lb ground meat
Fry onions, then add meat (beef or lamb). Add "meat spices"; aka, 'baharat'. Also possibly allspice. And cinnamon. Put aside to cool.

In a mixing bowl, combine 3/4 cups yoghurt (leban), 2 full tbs tahini, 2 tbs vinegar, and 5 chopped tomatoes. Mix and add meat.

Break open a can of biscuit dough, punch down the rolls until about 1/4 inch in thickness. Add meat filling. Bake at 350F until done.
