CREAM CHEESEBUNS


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

consuming.

The savoury had grated red capsicum ,and the

sweet had apple slices .

Amazing recipe worth trying.!

To the recipe now

Ingredients for the dough

3 cups flour

50gm+1 tbsp butter

1+1/2 tsp instant yeast

Knead lightly and stretch the dough .

tray.

Let it rise on the tray .

Make an impression with a cup on each piece
