Ingredients
  • 1 ready-rolled puff pastry
  • 1 block cow's cheese (farmer's cheese) (250 g/8 oz)
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/8 tsp ground black pepper
Instructions
  1. Add the cheese to a bowl, and use a fork to crumble it.

  2. Add one egg, season with ground black pepper, and mix to get a paste.

  3. Cut the puff pastry into 6 rectangles.

  4. Add one tablespoon of the cheese mixture to the middle of each tringle, and fold it in half to make it into a tringle.

  5. Use a fork to seal the edges.

  6. Beat the other egg, and brush each triangle well.

  7. Prick the pastries in a few places to allow the steam to escape during baking.

  8. Bake in the preheated oven at 180 degrees Celsius (350 Fahrenheit) for 25 minutes or until golden.
