Flour a flat surface, roll out dough to ⅛ inch thickness and cut into 3 inch circles. Place 1 tbs of the meat filling in the middle of each circle, fold over one side of the dough and seal to the other side by pressing down then tuck under the edges so they look like tortellini.  Bake in oven until dumplings are golden brown.
