(english) Burichitas

It ‘s true….  that everything can inspire you in the kitchen 🙂
Today’s recipe is  typical of the Bulgarian cuisine sefartida. I read the book “Il conto dell’ultima cena ” by Moni Ovadia, a fun exploration of the relationship between food and culture of the Jewish people.  This book  is a collection of stories and recipes of the Jewish cuisine , so I decided to try some of them, some look really inviting.
The Burichitas are simple to prepare and are very tasty.There are no doses of the ingredients in the book. I did a search on the web, and all the blogs that give this recipe (which are very few) point to the same site.   and  aunt Elle has been inspired by the book too 🙂 anyway….  I decided to follow her doses about  the ingredients …. and the result is really great.

Ingredients for 12 burichitas:
puff pastry
100 g of ricotta
100 g feta or teleme (I used feta, teleme is a Bulgarian cheese but not easy to find)
50 g of breadcrumbs soaked in a bit of water or milk and squeezed
1 egg (for the filling)
1 egg yolk for brushing the surface
grated Parmesan cheese

Prepare a mixture with the feta, ricotta, Parmesan cheese, bread crumbs and egg.
Roll out the dough and cut circles (the size that you want), fill with the mixture and close like ravioli or crescent. Brush with egg yolk, sprinkle with Parmesan cheese and sesame seeds and bake in preheated oven at 200 C for 15/20 minutes.
