Cheese Fatayer


Mix the flour with sugar, yeast and salt. Then add the butter and mix well.

Pour in the water gradually until the dough forms. Knead the dough for about 5 minutes.

Grease a large bowl with butter and place the dough in it. Brush the top with some butter.

Cover the bowl and let it rest for 15 minutes.

To prepare the cheese filling: In a large bowl, mix the cheese with chopped mint leaves.

Sprinkle the work surface with flour and knead the dough.

Cut the dough into small balls. Roll each dough ball into an oval shape.

Spread one tablespoon of filling in the center of each dough.

Fold one edge of the dough over diagonally and press it gently to seal it properly. Repeat the process with the other edge leaving an opening in the center to get the boat shape.

Brush all the fatayer with melted butter before putting in the oven. Bake in the preheated oven at 180°C for 15-20 minutes or until golden.
