  • 1 cup of  lukewarm milk
  • 2 eggs + 1 egg yolk
  • 1 and 1/2 tsp of yeast
  • 1/4 cup of sugar
  • 4 cups of flour
  • 1/4 of a cup (60 g) butter soft

Cheese filling:

  • 500 g of pot/ricotta/farmers cheese
  • 2 egg yolks
  • 2 tsp of vanilla essence
  • 1/4 cup of sugar
  • 2 tbs of soft butter 30 g


  • 1 cup icing sugar
  • 1 tbs of lemon juice
  • about 1 tbs of hot water


Mix all the ingredients for the dough and knead until smooth and elastic. 

Leave for about an hour and a half to rise. It needs to double in size.

In the mean time prepare the cheese layer. Add all the ingredients to a bowl. Using fork or pastry blender mix until all is well combined. If the cheese is too dry you might have to add couple tbs of milk to get nice, spreading consistency.

Roll the dough out into rectangle about half a cm thick. Spread the cheese layer on top. Fold the dough in 3, bottom 1/3 way up and then cover with the top. Press gently down. Using pizza cutter cut the dough in 12 equal parts. Twist each part once in the middle and transfer onto a baking sheet lined with a parchment paper.

Spray with a nonstick spray and cover. Let it rise until puffed up. about 30 minutes.

Brush with an egg wash and bake in preheated oven to 180C/350F for 20 minutes or until golden brown. If it browns too fast cover with aluminium foil.

Mix the icing sugar with lemon and water until smooth. Add water a little bit at the time to get right consistency.  Brush tops of the warm rolls with the glaze. Let it set a bit before serving.
