Ingredients

  • 1 sheet puff pastry
  • 1 cup farmer's cheese grated
  • 6 tbsp granulated sugar
  • powder sugar for dusting

Instructions

  • Pre heat the oven at 375°. 
  • Line a baking sheet with baking paper. 
  • Grate the cheese on the large side of the box grater. 
  • Sprinkle the working surface with flour and spread the dough. 
  • Sprinkle the cheese then roll the dough thinly with a rolling pin pressing the cheese into the dough. You may find it useful to rub the rolling pin with some vegetable oil to prevent the cheese from sticking to it.
  • Use a small bowl with thin edges to cut round shapes out of dough. You can re use the scraps by kneading them into a ball and then repeating the process above but the cookies most likely won't be as flaky as the original dough. If you're using home made dough this shouldn't affect the flakiness. 
  • Put some sugar into a plate and press one side of the circle into the sugar. 
  • With the sugar side up, fold the circle in half then fold again. 
  • Dip one side of the folded cookie into the sugar again.
  • Repeat for all cookies.
  • Place the cheese cookies sugar side up on the prepared baking sheet and bake in the middle of the oven for about 20 minutes or until the cookies get a golden crust. 
  • Serve warm or cold dusted with some more sugar (optional)
