Like I mentioned in my previous post, making chebureki dough from scratch can be time consuming. The buttery and flakey dough is so worth the extra time. Typically people have chebureki with cheese or meat. My grandmother gave it a little twist of her own and added apples and sugar as fillings. The sweetness of the apples and sugar with the crispy fried dough is so delicious! It goes perfectly with tea or coffee.

2. Add in the flour and mix together using the hook attachment. You’ll know it’s done mixing when the dough doesn’t stick to the sides of the mixer bowl anymore.

3. Place the dough onto a floured surface and divide the dough in half. Roll each half into a log, then cut each log into about 7 equal pieces.

4. Form each piece into a ball and flatten it out into a circle using a rolling pin. (About 8 inches in diameter)

5. Generously brush the melted butter onto one side of the circle and roll up tightly. Place the rolled up buttery dough onto a baking sheet and refrigerate for 30 minutes. This will help stiffen the butter.

6. Cut each rolled up circle in half and roll each half out longways. If you want, you can cut the ends so they look prettier. (Totally optional)

8. Shred the apples and gently squeeze out any excess juices. Fill 1 side of the turnover with about 1-2 tbsp of the shredded apples and sugar to taste. Flip the empty side of the turnover on top and seal with a fork.
