Quarktaschen

2015.02.08.Winter.094s

Especially the best husband loves his Quarktasche (curd filled filo-dough bags) in the morning. After dropping the kids at school he often stops at the local bakery to pick-up his Quarktasche for breakfast. But on Sundays we have Quarktaschen for everyone!

You’ll need:

  • ca. 500 g filo dough
  • 500 g curd
  • 75 g sugar
  • 100 g butter meted and cooled down
  • 1 egg
  • 1 table spoon heaped corn starch
  • 1 tbsp vanilla sugar
  • zest from one lemon
  1. If you have frozen filo dough take it out of the freezer and let it thaw according to package instructions.
  2. Preheat oven to 180 degrees Celsius.
  3. Melt the butter and let it cool down.
  4. Combine the butter with all other ingredients.
  5. Roll out the dough and cut from it ca. 10-15 cm large squares.
  6. Place one spoon full of the curd mixture in the middle of the square and fold in all four corners, making little packages.
  7. Bake them for ca. 25 minutes or until golden brown.

Variations: add 100 g of steamed poppy seeds to the curd mixture and one more egg.
