"Túrós batyu"

Túrós batyu

This is a delicious pastry filled with Hungarian cottage cheese. And this is my favorite pastry beside the coco snail. It called "túrós batyu" in Hungarian. (The "túró" word means cottage cheese and "turós batyu" means cheesecloth.)

Here you can see the Hungarian cottage cheese.


It has a special slightly sour flavor and a grainy consistency.

Ingredients for my "turós batyu":

for the dough:
50 dkg flour, 7,5 dkg soft butter, 1,8 dkg fresh cake yeast, 3 dl milk, 2 egg yolk, 2 tbs sugar, 1 café spoon salt

for the filling:
25 dkg Hungarian cottage cheese, 2-3 tbs sugar, 1 pack vanilla sugar, 1 egg, 1 tbs sour creeam, 1 tbs grits


1. Mix and knead the ingredients in the bread baker, or if you haven't got bread baker, than mix yeast and 1 tbs sugar in lukewarm milk. Let stand until other ingredients are mixed. Mix yolks with butter and yeast mixture. Add flour and knead well and let rise for an hour in warm place.

2. In a bowl mix the ingredients for the filling.

3. Flour the board and roll out thin the dough and cut square and place 1-1 tbs filling in the middle of the squares and create the forms, like on the first and last pictures. Use greaseproof paper and place the forms into the tin.

4. Bake in preheated oven about at 180 Celsius for 25-30 minutes. When the pastries are half-baked, then sprinkle them with some milk mixture with butter and vanilla sugar, and then return it to the oven and continue the baking.

5. Serve with icing sugar and enjoy!

If you don't like cottage cheese or the cottage cheese is not known in your country, than you may use jam instead of the cottage cheese filling.

I love the Hungarian "turo", cottage cheese, but can not stand what you can get in the States. Any suggestions what I can replace it with?
