This is my version of the Russian Vatrushka
bun. I prepared two types of buns with the
same dough.One batch of savoury buns,and
another batch of sweet . Both fillings were with
cream cheese.It was one of the best buns I have
made,it was very soft and creamy .
The filling had no cooking involved,so no time
The savoury had grated red capsicum ,and the
sweet had apple slices .
Amazing recipe worth trying.!
