Turkish cheesy buns

While browsing the publications in the culinary Facebook groups, I came across the post of a lady who had prepared Turkish salty bites – a recipe from the internet site https://cookathouse.com/. I was immediately intrigued. Not only because of their amazing look at the picture, but also because of my travel memories from Turkey. The Turkish people are unsurpassed in making salty buns and dough delights. You grasp the small piece of temptation in your hands, squeeze it until your fingers gather, release and it returns to its original form.

Although the recipe does requires dough preparation, it is not that difficult. On the one hand, it does not require rising and that saves a lot of time, on the other hand, the dough is so soft and pleasant touching and does not stick to the fingers that working with it is a real pleasure. Although at first glance, the recipe seems to be quite greasy, may be this is the thing that contributes to the look and the taste. Here they are – TURKISH CHEESY BUNS!

Bon appetit!

Put them with the ridge down in the tray, which you already covered with a baking paper or a teflon pad. Be sure to leave a space between them. To give the traditional Turkish look, press them with a fork not too hard, leaving traces.
