Moldavian Cheese Strudel (Placinta)


Advertisements

Recipe Makes: 12 servings

Prep Time: 15 minutes

Cook Time: 40-50 minutes

Total Time: 55-65 minutes

INGREDIENTS:

1 lb filo dough

1 ½ cup feta cheese

1 ½ cup farmer cheese

¼ cup corn oil

1 egg

½ cup sour cream

DIRECTIONS:

  1. Prep: Grab a baking dish and brush it with corn oil. Preheat the oven to 350 F. Mix together the feta and farmer cheese together in a bowl.
  2. Start off by taking your filo dough out of the packaging and laying it down flat. Grab 1 layer and lightly dab it with corn oil. I recommend dabbing with a silicone brush instead of a regular brushing since brushing could rip the dough. (Cover the dough you are not using with a towel since it dries out very quickly).
  3. Repeat step 2 until you have a total of 4 layers. Stack the layers on top of each other. Grab another dough sheet and place in top of the oiled up dough. Then spread 1 cup of the cheese mixture at the edge of the layered dough and then tightly wrap it up.
  4. Place the dough into the baking dish and repeat until you have used all of the dough. Brush the remaining oil onto the rolls.
  5. Mix together the sour cream and egg in a bowl and pour it on top of the rolls.
  6. Bake at 350 F for 40-50 minutes or until the top is golden brown. Let cool before slicing. Enjoy!
