Process of Yeast Pastry with Cheese Recipe
For the yeast pastry with cheese, put all the ingredients into a deep bowl except for the flour and the yeast and mix them. Add the yeast and knead while adding the flour gradually. Stop adding the flour while the dough is sticky.
Clean your hands and knead the dough for 2 or 3 minutes more. Gather up the dough and cover the dough with a clean cloth. Leave it for 1 hour.
For the filling, mix the chopped parsley and the cottage cheese in a bowl.
At the end of the time, divide the dough into 3 lumps. Roll the lumps with the palm of your hands and then roll the lumps out into a rectangle with a rolling pin.
Scatter half of the cheese mixture along the long edge of the dough. And start rolling up it. Then by leaving 2 cm. borders between each part, cut the rolled dough. Place them into a greased tray leaving gaps in between the dough to rise. After you finish rolling and cutting all the lumps, leave them for 15 minutes into a tray to rise.
To brush over the dough, mix all the ingredients you need into a bowl. Then brush the mixture on the dough.
