Pie with sweet soft cheese and raisins


This is an excellent and very easy to make pie


For the dough: you either buy a package of milfoils (is a special strudel dough) or you make it yourself in the house and here is the recipe for the dough:

Take 2 teaspoons sugar, 20 g yeast, a pinch of salt, 100 ml lukewarm water and dissolve them. Add 100 ml oil and 250-300 g flour. Mix all these very well. The dough must not be sticky, if it is add some more oil. If you consider it is too soft, also add a bit more flour. Leave it to rest in a warm place for 30 minutes, until it doubles its volume. Split the dough into small balls and spread it into layers as thin as you can (in order to obtain those numerous thin layers).

The filling: Take 6 eggs, , 1 teaspoons of cinammon powder, 6 tablespoons sugar, sugared vanilla, 100 g raisins and 300-400 g soft sweet cottage cheese (not Philadelphia; use any other cheese that is not salted and you can mix it into a soft paste). If you consider the mixture to be too thick add a spoon of sour cream.

Now, spread the layers of dough (have several put on top of each other, with a bit of oil in between) and place a line of filling in the middle. Roll the dough to obtain a cylinder (that looks like a loaf of bread) and place these rolls into the baking tray. Bake until crispy, for about 45 minutes. Sprinkle some sugar powder when ready and bon appetite.
Tip: you can also use salty cheese and if you do, reduce the quantity of sugar in the filling.
