- 1 kg pack of good puff pastry made with butter
- 200g Katchkaval Cheese if you can find it otherwise sabstitue for Pecorino Romano Cheese
- 250g good quality Feta Cheese
- 200g Riccota
- 1 egg for the filling plus 1 egg for eggwash
Heat oven to 180°C.
Mix all the filling ingredients together.
The pastry should be rolled out to a thickness of 5mm
Cut the pastry in to squares according the the size you want to end up with (small as nibbles or bigger for a meal). Brush with water you are about to fold one corner of the square towards the other corner diagnaly across to make a traingle that will enclose the filling, so keeping that in mind place a mound of filling on the half the square that would be one side of the triangle leaving 0.5-1 cm margin of pastry, fold over and seal. You can use a fork to mark and seal the around the folded two sides.
Brush with beaten egg, sprinkle sesame seeds, bake until puffed and golden brown.
