 Ingredients List

  • -----------------------------------DOUGH-----------------------------------
  • 1/2 c Margarine
  • 1 c Sugar
  • 1 1/2 c Water
  • 3 Eggs
  • 1 Lemon; rind from
  • 1 kg Flour
  • 1 pk "Shimrit" yeast or


6 pk 1/2% fat white cheese (I
-guess you could use cream
3 Eggs
6 tb Corn starch
1 1/2 c Sugar
6 pk Vanilla sugar

This recipe is a lot of work, and takes a lot of time, but don't stop
reading now...it is really good!

Drain the cheese in a towel hung over the sink for 3-4 hours. Take the
remaining cheese ball and mix with the rest of the ingredients and

Dough: Mix 1 T sugar with the water and yeast and let foam. Add margarine
sugar and eggs. Add the rest and mix well. It makes a sticky dough.

Roll out the entire dough into one very large rectangle on a well floured
surface. Smear with 1 1/2 cups of margarine, folding like a business
letter and then folding the outside ends in thirds to the middle.
Refrigerate for several hours.

Divide the dough into 6 balls. Roll out into a 81/2 x 11 rectanle. Put
cheese in row down the center. Cut slits on the diagonal from the outer
edge of the dough to just before the cheese and cover into a "mock braid"
not overlapping the two sides by a lot (barely overlap so the piece you
receive to eat isn't too doughy!). Bake until golden brown. Boil 1 cup of
sugar with 1/2 cup of water and pour syrup over hot loaves. Freezes well
