I missed the salty cheese pies my grandmother didn't make, sometimes baked on the stove, sometimes in an oil pan. Warm, fluffy and fragrant pies, as only Grandma knew how to make.
- For the dough:
- 500 g flour
- 250 ml milk (or water)
- 50 ml oil
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 teaspoon sugar
- 10 g dry yeast (25 g fresh yeast)
- For the filling:
- ~ 300 g cow's cheese and telemea (proportions are set according to preference)
- salt and pepper
- green dill
- 1 tablespoon sour cream (only if the cheese is too dry)
Method of preparation:
In a bowl, mix the flour with the dry yeast, sugar and salt. In a kettle, lightly heat the milk and oil. Pour over the flour and knead an elastic and non-sticky dough.
- Depending on the type of flour, if necessary add a little more flour or milk.
- If you use fresh yeast, dissolve it in milk.
Cover the bowl with a towel and leave the dough to rise until it doubles in volume.
Mix the cottage cheese with the crushed telemeau, salt and pepper to taste and season with chopped green dill.
Pour the dough on the table greased with a little oil and fold it into small pieces, 10-12 pieces. From the pieces of dough we form balls that we spread well with the rolling pin. In the middle we put a spoonful of filling, then we fold the edges, forming a ball. Press lightly with your hand as thin as possible.
Fry the plates on both sides in the pan with a little very hot oil. Remove on an absorbent towel.
They were very good. Grandma's kiss!
