Ingredients
 

Cream

  • 3 tbsp White Sugar – Regular Sugar – Granulated Sugar
  • 2 tbsp Semolina
  • 9 grams (0.32 oz) Vanilla Powder
  • 1 pc Lemon Peel/zest
  • 250 gram (8.82 oz) Cottage Cheese
  • 1 tbsp Sour Cream
  • 1 pc Egg

Dough

  • 500 grams (1.1 lb) Pastry Flour – Fine Flour
  • 285 ml (9.64 floz) Milk lukewarm
  • 1 pinch Salt
  • 18 grams (0.63 oz) Fresh Yeast
  • 75 grams (2.65 oz) Margarine
  • 2 pcs Egg Yolk
  • 3 tbsp White Sugar – Regular Sugar – Granulated Sugar

Instructions
 

  • First, Grab a small mixing bowl, pour in some milk (lukewarm), add in the yeast, cover it and leave it for a few minutes until you prepare the rest of the dough.
  • In a large mixing bowl, mix the flour, salt, sugar, and margarine. Later on, add the two egg yolks and continue mixing; create a small hole in the middle of the mixture and pour the yeast mixture. You can mix it with your hands or can use a stand mixer. Work them well together, then cover the dough with a kitchen towel/cloth, place it in a warm place and leave the dough to rise for an hour.
  • In a large mixing bowl, mix the ingredients for the cream (sugar, powdered vanilla sugar, cottage cheese, lemon peel, sour cream, egg, semolina); let it rest for a few minutes so the semolina will rise and soften the cream.
  • Grab a large wooden board or a large cutting board, and sprinkle it with some flour so the dough won't stick. Flatten the dough with a rolling pin to a thickness of 1 cm (0.3 inches), and cut it into medium-sized thin cubes.
  • In the middle of the cube, place one tablespoon of the cream, and seal them by pinching the four corners together.
  • Once the cubes are closed, grab a baking sheet, place baking paper on it, and transfer the cottage cheese bundle. With a silicone brush, brush some egg whites on top and leave them to rest for 30 minutes.
  • Preheat the oven to 180°F/82°C.
  • Bake for about 20 minutes or until golden brown.
  • Take them out, wait till they are cooled down, then sprinkle some powdered sugar on the top and serve.
SERVE WITH:

Sprinkle some powdered sugar on the top.
