Cooking process

Soft, curvy and ruddy cottage cheese patties are a simple but very tasty dish that will help out at any time of the year and will be ready to serve on the table after 30-40 minutes. Cooked on the basis of cottage cheese, without yeast and oil in the composition, the pastry dough does not require insisting and turns out to be light and non-capricious in work, and pies – lush, airy and soft.

Since the dough itself has a neutral taste, the pie filling can be selected as salty or sweet. Today, as one of the options I propose to prepare a simple and quick savory version of pies – with brine cheese and fresh herbs as a filling. Let’s start ?!

To prepare, you will need the ingredients listed in the list.

Ingredients for cottage cheese pies

Combine the eggs, salt and sugar and beat for 1-1.5 minutes, until the sugar dissolves.

Connect the eggs with sugar

Add the cottage cheese and grind the mixture for another 1-2 minutes with a submerged blender, until smooth. Alternatively, in order for the curd not to feel as a separate lump in the dough, it can be wiped through a sieve or pierced beforehand in a separate container to a pasty state.

Put the cottage cheese

In the resulting mixture, add 160 grams of sifted wheat flour and 0.5 tsp. soda.

Add flour and soda

Mix the ingredients, gently blend the mixture and form the resulting dough into a bowl. It is not necessary to knead carefully the dough, because from this it will become more rigid and pies will be worse to rise. For the same reason, it is not worth adding more flour to the dough at this stage.

Move the dough to a flour-poured work surface and divide into 7-10 pieces, depending on the desired size of the patties. I divide the dough into 7 parts weighing 50-60 grams, we get 7 large pies, about 20 centimeters in length, respectively.

For the filling, mix grated cheese (Feta cheese, Suluguni, Adyghe cheese, brynza) and finely chopped fresh greens. Add a little salt to taste.

Combine grated cheese and greens

Align a portion of the dough with a palm to a thickness of about 0.5 centimeters and add a serving portion. The dough will remain slightly sticky, so during work, lightly sprinkle the dough and the working surface with flour.

Put the filling on the dough

Connect the edges of the dough, tighten it firmly and form a patty.

To make a patty

Turn the patty with the seam down, gently press and flatten the palm to a thickness of approximately 1 cm. Repeat the procedure with the remaining filling and dough.

Put the patties on the board

Heat a little vegetable oil over medium heat and put the patties in a frying pan, leaving a bit of free space, as during the frying process the pies will increase in volume.

Put the patties on the pan

Fry the patties from two sides to a golden color (about 3 minutes on each side).
