Recipe #12: Бързи питки със сирене (Cheese Biscuits)

Translated literally, "бързи питки със сирене" means "quick bread with cheese." These are quick and easy, but they are really more like cheddar cheese biscuits than anything else. I first had them in Chiprovtsi and I adapted the recipe from here. The recipe yields 20-24 biscuits.


1 cup grated cirene (feta cheese)
1 egg
1 cup yogurt
2/3 cup sunflower oil
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon garlic powder
approximately 3 cups flour
1/4 pound (100 grams) of grated kashkaval (cheddar cheese)
1 fresh hot pepper, seeded and finely diced (optional)


Mix two cups flour, cirene, egg, oil, garlic powder, and salt (and hot pepper) in a bowl. Dissolve baking soda into yogurt and add to the other products. Knead dough until soft, gradually adding remaining cup flour. Let dough stand in the refrigerator for about ten minutes. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Form the dough in balls the size of a walnut. Place on a baking sheet at a distance from each other (size will double while baking). Sprinkle the shredded cheddar cheese on top of each ball. Bake until golden. Serve warm.
