I wrote on the blog some while ago another recipe for pastries made with farmers cheese.

Today, I thought that you might like to try another beautiful recipe and a favorite in my house, so I present you pastries filled with Feta cheese and caraway.

If you visit Romania and especially Bucharest, the capital of the country where I grew up, you will find small bakeries with wonderful pastries at every corner of the street.

There are so many bakeries and pastry businesses that you cannot even imagine.

Pretzels, savory pastries filled with cheese, meat, sausages or hot dogs, or sweet ones filled with apples, pumpkin or farmer’s cheese, to just mention a few of them.

There are options for everyone and for every taste.

However, there is nothing better than home made pastries. You can have them as appetizers, but they are perfect for any meal during the day.

In the past, I used to be afraid to work with puff pastry, but I discovered how easy it is, and since then, I love making all kinds of pastries with it.

How to make these Savory Feta and Black Caraway Pastries:

You will need to thaw the puff pastry first. For this recipe in particular, I used puff pastry squares that were approximately 5×5 inches each.

However, sheets of puff pastry are easy to find in the grocery stores, so you can cut them the same size.

Then, preheat the oven to 400F/200C.

The filling is made with only two ingredients, feta cheese and egg. My favorite feta is made with sheep or goat milk, but cow milk feta is fine too.

Beat the egg with a fork in a bowl. Crumble the feta and add it to the egg to make the filling. 

Place a dollop of the cheese mixture in the middle of each pastry, then fold the dough like a triangle or just in two, as you prefer.

With a fork, seal the pastry together, so the cheese doesn’t come out while baking.
