  • Form into a circles, but work the dough as little as possible; the less kneading, the more tender the result. Wrap the bowl with plastic wrap and chill it in fridge at least 2 hours.

Making Regulach

  • Preheat the oven to 375F. Roll the dough in portions, on generously floured surface. Cut triangles out of the dough. Place the filling on the thicker side.

  • Roll the wide end of triangle inside, ending with smaller piece wrapping around, just like a croissant. Tuck the point of wedge underneath so the rolls don't unroll during the baking process. Place it on a lightly oiled baking sheet, leaving space between rolls.
