Kiflice/Siberian Cheese Rolls

Siberian cheese rolls or Siberian mini rolls aka Kiflice is a popular savory soft rolls which is usually served as a starter at family meetings or as a finger foods at parties in Siberia. Every Siberian family have their own variation of the recipe. Some prepare this rolls stuffed with cheese or else with sweet spreads. However you can fill these rolls with various mixture of your choice or else without any filling These Siberian rolls tastes extremely delicious and great, all because of the dough. Yes the dough plays an important roll for making these dangerously addictive rolls. Though this Siberain rolls calls for butter while baking, trust me adding small butter cubes while baking gives a crispy and almost like fried bottoms to this rolls. Dont skip adding the butter or margarine while baking, if you are planning to bake this cute rolls. If you skip this butter part, you will get the just ordinary rolls.

Serbian Soft Rolls, Kiflice

Though i have crossed couple of baking dishes with 'K', i couldnt resist to give a try to this Siberian cheese rolls. I used feta cheese for the filling, which tastes extremely delicious while these rolls were hot, however an excellent dish to enjoy with everyone at home. I was very much pleased with the outcome of this Serbian cheese rolls. If you dont like feta cheese or dont get feta cheese, you can replace it very with cream cheese. Its definitely worth to give a try to this fantastic starter if you want to give a try to something different from your usual bakes. The original recipe used an egg and fresh yeast for preparing the dough, obviously i skipped the egg and replace the fresh yeast with instant yeast. Am running a month of blogging marathon with A-Z Baking around the world as theme and thes Kiflice are going to be a part of this theme.

Punch the dough, divide into 5 equal parts, shape them into balls.

Flatten each ball by hands, then use a rolling pin to roll the dough out in a circle.

Use a sharp knife to cut the circle into 8 triangles.

Take one triangle, stretch it  with your hands gently.

Put some filling  then fold the edges of the dough well to avoid the filling to leak out during baking. Roll it tightly.
