Cheese Borekas - A Creative Kosher Shavuot Recipe  That Will Wow Your Guests And Leave You Satisfied



Here's a recipe for Cheese Borekas, a delicious savory pastry that is popular in Mediterranean and Middle Eastern cuisine:



Ingredients:



For the dough:



- 2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1/2 cup vegetable oil
- 1/2 cup warm water



For the filling:



- 1 lb feta cheese, crumbled
- 1/2 cup ricotta cheese
- 1/4 cup chopped parsley
- 1/4 cup chopped scallions
- 1/4 tsp black pepper

For the egg wash:


- 1 egg, beaten
- 1 tbsp water



Instructions:



1. Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C).

2. In a large mixing bowl, combine the flour and salt. Add in the vegetable oil and mix until the mixture is crumbly.

3. Gradually add in the warm water, mixing until a smooth dough forms.

4. On a floured surface, roll out the dough to a thickness of about 1/8 inch.

5. Cut the dough into circles using a cookie cutter or a glass. Each circle should be about 3 inches in diameter.

6. In a separate mixing bowl, combine the feta cheese, ricotta cheese, parsley, scallions, and black pepper.

7. Place a spoonful of the cheese mixture in the center of each dough circle.

8. Fold the dough over the filling to form a half-moon shape. Pinch the edges of the dough together to seal the boreka.

9. Place the borekas on a greased baking sheet.

10. In a small bowl, whisk together the egg and water to make the egg wash.

11. Brush the egg wash over the tops of the borekas.

12. Bake for 20-25 minutes or until the borekas are golden brown.

13. Remove from the oven and let the borekas cool for a few minutes before serving.

Optional: You can also add chopped spinach or other vegetables to the cheese filling for added flavor and nutrition. Enjoy!
