Cheese Pies also known as (Fatayer) These homemade dough stuffed with mix cheese , a staple of Middle eastern cuisine. They are absolutely delicious, Traditionally the Cheese fatayer recipe is made with the akkawi cheese but you can make it like me with my favorite cheese feta cheese and mozzarella cheese together.
Servings For : 6-8 People Prep Time: 1 Hour 30 Minutes
For the dough:-
4 cups of all-purpose flour
1/2 cup of olive oil
salt 1 tablespoons
sugar 1 tablespoons
1 1/3 cups of water
2 tablespoons yeast (1 standard packet)
For the filling:-
Mix 2 cup mozzarella cheese
1/2 cup feta cheese
3 tablespoons olive oil
3 tablespoons oregano
Mix all the ingredients together and sit aside.
Let’s make the dough and let it rises.
1.mix the yeast, warm water and sugar in a cup and let it sit for 10 minutes until the yeast mixture rises and doubles in size. *This step is important to make sure the yeast is active.
2.In the mixing bowl, add all the dry ingredients in. Start by adding in the yeast and mix, then add in the warm water and oil . Continue kneading the dough for 1-2 minutes until the dough collect well.
3.Remove the bowl out from the mixer and collect with your hand to make a round dough. Return to the bowl, cover with a towel or plastic wrap for 45-1 hour until the dough doubles in size.( when the dough ready).
Remove it from the bowl, sprinkle some flour on it and knead a little bit with your hands on your countertop or cutting board to deflate it. Cut up the dough and form into small even balls. Then roll your balls to make it like a circle, then fill the circle with 1 tablespoons of the cheese mixture then shape the dough , basically you can close it like a ball or you can close it from the top and the bottom only and leave it open from the Center . Repeat for the reminder of the dough mixture.
Brush a baking sheet with oil and place the cheese pies 1/2 inch a part bake then on 350 degrees for about 20 minutes or till your pies ready.
