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
2 cups grated cheddar cheese-this is approximate and depends on how cheesy you want them.
2 cups feta cheese
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.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees
Roll each ball one at a time. Sprinkle with cheddar or feta cheese.
Roll up and push ends in to seal.
With a knife make small marks in dough where it will be cut.
Place on a baking sheet.
Bake for 30 minutes or until brown on the top and bottom. Slice and serve.
