Monday Soulful Baking

Hello everyone! For today’s post I am sharing a special recipe. It is a typical savory pastry from where I am from. We call it “Rollo de Queso” or “Cheese roll up” though it is not so much of a roll up as it is the dough flipped to the center. This recipe is very special as it was my great grandmas but my mother did some twerks to make it better!

Hope you guys enjoy! 👅

You will need:

Dry Ingredients

3 cups AP Flour

3 tsp baking powder

Wet Ingredients

100 gr of butter

3/4 cup of sugar

3 egg replacement* or 4 egg yolks

1/2 Kilo of white cheese* or any other cheese you prefer

1 tsp olive oil

1 tsp milk

Milk to what your dough needs (maybe 1/4 cup)

*for the egg replacement we use for each egg

1 tsp baking powder

1 T olive oil

1 T water

*For the white cheese, the one we use back home is very salty so for the one you find in the U.S. you can add 1T kosher salt

*For the white cheese if you are not using the eggs you add 1tsp olive oil and 1 tsp of milk. If you are using eggs, you add the egg whites to the cheese leaving some behind for the paint brush of the roll up

Preparation

Sift the dry ingredients and set aside. On a mixer soften the butter (see image below), add the sugar and once everything mixed together start adding the dry ingredients. You add some milk whenever your mixture is too dry. Once everything is mixed together you divide the dough in fours. With a roller you extend the dough and add the cheese in the center (see image below) you fold it and brush it with milk or egg whites. Bake it at 350 F or 175 C for 15 minutes or more. Enjoy!

PS: they don’t look too beautiful but I swear the taste is 👌
