When making chebureki I typically buy uncooked flour tortillas from the grocery store. Although buying pre-made dough saves a lot of cook time, it can’t compare to the flavor of homemade dough. I will admit, making you dough can be quite time consuming, but it’s so worth it. As you make roll out the dough, you can actually see the rings of butter. You just can’t beat that buttery flakey dough taste.

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.

7. 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. Fill 1/2 of each turnover with about 2 tbsp of the farmer’s cheese filling. Flip the empty side of the turnover on top and seal with a fork.
