This wonderful pastry filled with cheese has been a favorite in our family for as long as I can remember. A family friend, Bev who is also an innovative and fantastic home cook, passed on this recipe for Cheesies. These pastries are simple but amazingly delicious!

Ingredients for pastry

2 1/2 level cups flour

1 cup butter softened but not melted

1– 8 ounce package cream cheese

Filling

2 cups grated cheddar cheese-this is approximate and depends on how cheesy you want them.

2 cups feta cheese

Directions

Mix cream cheese and butter very well, add flour and continue to mix. Dough should be a smooth ball at this point. Place in plastic bag and refrigerate for an hour.

Take dough out of refrigerator and divide into four equal balls.
