6. When you have folded everything paint the top side with butter and lay on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper.
7. Repeat with the remaining 5 portions.
8. Place the cookie sheet in the fridge and let set until the butter cools.
9. To cook, Place the cookie sheet in a preheated 350F oven. After 4 minutes flip each pie over and turn the cook tray around. Cook another 4-6 minutes until golden brown. Serve immediately.
