Ingredients for Flaky Cheese Puffs  POGAČICE

INGREDIENTS

Drum roll please: these cheese puffs are made using only four ingredients. Make sure your butter (unsalted, please) is at room temperature before you begin. This will ensure that the butter blends perfectly with the flour and pressed cottage cheese.

ROLL CALL

Rolling the dough and folding it back onto itself in thirds is KEY to getting these little wonders to rise so high. Do the roll and fold step at least FOUR TIMES, if not more!

CHEESE PLEASE

Pressed cottage cheese is the perfect cheese for this recipe because it contains hardly any liquid. This causes the POGAČICE to expand and climb upwards as they bake. We’re always amazed by how light yet buttery they are. They truly are cheese puffs!

You’ll notice we never mentioned the yield for this recipe. What you see are the results from one of the two wrapped portions of dough. The other is still in the fridge, so you’ll be able to pull it out at a moment’s notice and answer your party-goers cries for more, more, more!

If you’re reading this wondering about other things that go well with these, try our SAVOURY MINI TARTS or our SMOKED TROUT DIP. Time to get this party started!

Serve these FLAKY CHEESE PUFFS at your next party. POGAČICE are it!
