Placinta Cu Poalele In Briu
(These are like little pockets filled with sweet cheese)
— 500g flour
— 10g yeast (the fresh kind)
— 2 eggs
— 1T butter
— 1T oil
— 1t sugar
— 150g cheese (probably something like ricotta
would work, or maybe farmer’s cheese)
— fresh butter (about the size of a walnut)
— 1 egg
— 1t flour
— 2T milk
— 1t sugar
Soften the yeast in a pot with a little bit of warm water. Add about a handful of flour little by little, stirring until it reaches the consistency of thick sourcream. Dust the top with a little bit of flour and then put it somewhere warm to rise.
Put the rest of the flour into a large bowl and make a well in the middle, add the eggs (slightly beaten) and the butter (melted) and the oil. Also add the mixture from above and mix it all well, and knead it very well until the dough comes off your hands and the bowl (it stops sticking to you and the bowl.)
(This part’s trickier) While beating, add milk, or warm water just enough to reach the “proper” softness.
FOR the FILLING: Mix the cheese with the butter, add the egg, milk, flour sugar and salt to taste. Mix well.
Roll out the dough, and then cut it into small squares. Place some cheese in the middle and then fold the edges to the middle, folding it like an envelope. make sure to seal it well, so none of the cheese will leak out. Brush with an egg wash and then bake. Serve warm.
