3)Flatten the each dough into 3 1/2 inch circle and put 1tbsp of ube filling and sealed the side by pitching it together. You can use store bought for the ube halaya or you can make your own I have a recipe for ube halaya.

4) You can just leave like that. But if you want to have your hopia the same shape you can use cookie cutter. Once you sealed it take a cookie cutter and put it in the middle and slightly flatten it. then pushed it out.

5 Bake it at 350 oven for 30 minutes. But before baking brush it with egg wash 2 egg yolks diluted in 2 tbsp water. And if you want your Hopi to have nice golden brown top. after 20 minutes baking flip the hopia over then you will get the nice golden brown color.

if your Hopia  dough is sticking to your work surface then take a piece of plastic wrap and put your cut Hopia dough then roll it. add the filling and sealed it by twisting it. then just peel the plastic off.
