Mini Cheese Pies with Kourou Dough
Method

For the dough

  • In a bowl, combine the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt in a bowl.
  • Add the vinegar, yogurt, olive oil and sunflower oil.
  • Mix with a spoon until all of the ingredients are completely combined and the mixture comes together nicely.
  • As soon as the dough starts to form, continue kneading by hand.

For the filling

  • In a bowl, add the feta and break it apart with a fork.
  • Add the thyme, oregano and mint.
  • Mix with a fork and add the pepper and yogurt to help keep the mixture together.
  • Mix.

To assemble

  • Preheat oven to 180* C (360* F) Fan.
  • Lightly knead the dough on a clean working surface. Do not knead for too long so that it doesn’t release any oil.
  • Cut the dough into 16 equal sized pieces. 
  • Lay a sheet of parchment paper on your working surface and place a piece of dough on it.
  • Spread it out with your hands and then roll it out with a rolling pin until it is 10-13 cm in diameter.
  • Place 1 tablespoon of the filling in the center and brush the edges all the way around with water so that it can stick together when closed.
  • Fold the dough over, using the parchment paper to help you and press down on the edges with a fork to seal and form a little pie.
  • Repeat the same process until all of the pieces of dough are filled.
  • Brush the tops with an egg yolk and sprinkle with sesame seeds.
  • Bake for 15-20 minutes, until golden.
  • When ready, remove from oven and serve.
