Sweet Cheese Bourekas Recipe

Sweet Cheese Bourekas are delicious Middle Eastern hand pies. They make a perfect dessert or a breakfast treat.

Holiday season is all about baking, but it's also a very busy time. That's why I love these easy quick recipes, they make all baking hassle free.

Where to find the best puff pastry?

I tried puff pastry from a few different stores and so far my favorite is from Trader Joe's. I think they use the better quality butter that makes the dough flavorful.

Prepare all ingredients for the recipe.
Combine farmer cheese with sugar and 2 eggs.
Divide the dough into equal size pieces, I divided mine into 9. Fill each half of the piece with farmer cheese and turn over to the other side.
Whisk the last egg and use it to brush the tops. Sprinkle it with some sugar.
Bake them at 350F for 15 minutes or until golden brown.
