CHEESE BARS

Ingredients:
350 grams Graham flour
250 grams cottage cheese
200 ml yogurt
1 egg
1 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
3 teaspoons baking powder



Using a mixer, beat the cheese with the yogurt, yolk, oil and red pepper flakes until creamy. To that, add the baking powder and continue beating for a minute or two more. Add the flour in a few additions, mixing at first with a wooden spoon, and then with your hands, until you get a firm dough that does not stick to your hands. You will need about 300 grams of flour to achieve that, the rest you use for the kneading and rolling the dough. Turn the dough onto a floured surface, knead briefly, then roll out to about 5 mm thickness and cut into small bars (yields about 80 of them). Beat the egg white with a pinch of salt, then glaze the prepared bars. Bake in a preheated oven, at 180˚C, for 15-18 minutes. Serve with yogurt.

    1. You can use any type of whole wheat flour (or any other type of flour you like, for that matter), it doesn't have to be Graham :)
      Hope you give these a try :)
