Sweet cheese pies

Yield: 4 servings

Measure Ingredient
1 teaspoon Sea salt
2 cups All-purpose flour
¼ cup Fruity olive oil
1 \N Orange; zest of
1 \N Lemon; zest of
½ cup Fresh orange juice; up to 2/3
1½ cup Fresh full fat farmer cheese
1 \N Orange; zest of
1 \N Lemon; zest of
2 tablespoons Sugar
2 tablespoons Milk; and
1 \N Egg yolk; beaten together



Mix the flour and salt in freestanding mixer with paddle and make a well in the center. Pour in the olive oil and orange and lemon zest and blend on low speed. Add the orange juice slowly, and beat until a soft and elastic dough forms, about 2-3 minutes. Let it rest for about 1 hour. Preheat the oven to 375 F.

Mix the cheese, sugar, and orange and lemon zest. Sprinkle your work surface with flour, and roll the dough out with the rolling pin. Cut 5-inch rounds and place 1 heaping tablespoon of filling in the center of each.

Using a spoon, spread the filling so that it covers about two-thirds of the area, leaving about ⅔ inch of pastry around. Roll the edge of the pastry inward to form a triangle shape. Transfer the pies to an oiled pan, brush with the milk and egg mixture, and bake for 20-25 minutes, or until golden.

Let cool on a rack before serving.
