1 egg (its yolk will be used for eggwash)

2/3 cup oil

60-75 gr butter, melted

3 tbsp yogurt

1 tbsp vinegar

1 tsp salt

1 cup crumbled feta cheese or grated mozzarella cheese

1 tbsp baking powder

2 ½ cups flour (white, all purpose, sifted)

1 tsp sesame seeds

 

Put all the ingredients, except egg yolk and cheese, in a deep bowl and mix well with your hands. Add the crumbled feta or grated mozzarella cheese. Knead the dough for 3-5 minutes.

Take a piece of dough about the size of a shelled walnut and give it the shape of a ball by using the palm of your hands (you can adjust the size as you like).

Place the pieces on a greased baking tray. You can use baking paper if you want. Then brush each piece with beaten egg yolk for glazing. Spread the sesame seeds on the tops.

Pre-heat the oven to 400 F (200 C). Bake for 18-20 minutes.

This recipe will make about 20-22 pieces. Serve warm.

ENJOY!
