 Ingredients List

  • 2 pk Dry yeast
  • Sugar
  • 1 1/4 c Lukewarm milk
  • Flour
  • 2 ts Salt
  • 1/2 c Butter, softened


1 lb Muenster Cheese
2 tb Butter
1 Egg, beaten

Sprinkle yeast and 1/2 teaspoon sugar over milk in small shallow bowl.
Cover with plastic wrap and place in warm place until yeast blooms and
mixture nearly doubles in vol- ume, 5 to 10 minutes. Combine 4 1/2 cups
flour, 1 tablespoon sugar and salt in large mixing bowl. Make well in flour
mixture and add milk-yeast mixture and softened butter. Beat vigorously
with large spoon until smooth. Form into ball and place on lightly floured
surface. Knead hard 10 minutes, adding more flour or water as needed to
create medium stiff dough. When dough is smooth and elastic, place in
large, lightly buttered bowl. Cover with plastic wrap and kitchen towel and
let rise in warm, draft-free place, such as unlit oven with pilot light on,
until doubled in bulk and dough springs back slowly when gently poked with
finger, 45 minutes to 1 hour. Punch dough down and let rise until again
doubled, 30 to 40 minutes. Punch dough down and roll out on lightly floured
surface into circle about 22 inches in diameter. If rolling surface is too
small, divide dough in half and roll into 2 half-circles 22 by 11 inches.
Roll dough up on rolling pin and unroll carefully over buttered 9-inch cake
or springform pan or springform so that it is centered, with edges
overlapping more or less evenly on all sides. If using 2 half circles of
dough, form 1-inch seam to make whole circle and moisten thoroughly to
seal. Carefully press center of dough down to bottom of pan. Place cheese
filling on dough and bring up edges of dough over filling, forming thick,
fabriclike folds. Moisten edges at top and seal. Let stand 10 to 15
minutes. Bake at 375 degrees in center of oven, on foil in case filling
leaks, until golden brown, 50 minutes to 1 hour. Cool 1 to 2 hours before
serving. Makes 12 to 16 servings.
Cheese Filling In large mixing bowl, combine cheese,
butter, and egg. Knead vigorously until mixture is uniform. Shape into
thick, round cake 8 to 7 1/2 inches in diameter.
