NONNA ANA'S CHEESE CRESCENTS

Ingredients:
450-500 grams all-purpose flour
250 ml warm milk
175 grams margarine
80 ml vegetable oil
20 grams fresh yeast
2 eggs
2 teaspoons of sugar
1 teaspoon of salt
250 grams cottage cheese
sea salt, cumin, for sprinkling


In a large bowl, put about 400 grams of sifted flour, a teaspoon of salt and a teaspoon of sugar. Crumble the fresh yeast in a small bowl (or a mug), pour 50 ml of warm milk and sprinkle one teaspoon of sugar and leave it to activate. To the flour add the rest of the warm milk, one yolk (well blended with the oil), and the activated yeast and blend well with a wooden spoon. You will get a very, very, very soft batter that will not resemble anything like dough, at least not yet. Take a bit of those remaining 100 grams of flour, move the batter a bit with the wooden spoon, sprinkle the flour over and blend again. Take a bit more of the flour, put it underneath the batter and knead the dough a bit with your hand. As soon as it starts to stick to your hand, stop kneading.
Take more of the flour and sprinkle on top and all around the dough, cover the bowl with a clean tea towel and leave it to rise, about 30–45 minutes.Put the risen dough on your work surface (only add a bit of flour if it starts to stick a lot), divide it into eight equal dough balls and knead them briefly. Roll out each into a circle, about 6" wide, and then spread some of the margarine (about a tablespoon or two per each circle) on top of four circles. Top those four with the remaining ones. Now you have four dough sandwiches, so to speak.
Roll out those dough sandwiches into large circles, and then cut them into eight equal triangles. For the filling, beat briefly the cheese with one whole egg. Put a bit of a filling onto each triangle, roll them from the wider to the narrower side and put them on a baking sheet lined with baking paper.Beat the remaining egg white until soft peeks form; then brush it evenly on every roll and sprinkle them with sea salt or cumin seeds. Chop the rest of the margarine into little cubes and put a dab on each roll. Bake them immediately in a preheated oven, at 180˚C, about 20 minutes. Original.
