Russian Cream Cheese Vatrushka Buns

Share

In my house, we call these Russian Cream Cheese Vatrushka Buns “inside out buns”. They get this name because the filling is on the outside rather than hidden away in the center! You can make a slightly sweeter filling by adding raisins. If you add raisins, you need to soak them in hot boiled water before combining with the cheese.

Start by making a dough by combining all of the ingredients in stages. When making the dough, it is important to add oil last, as the texture will turn out better. Once the dough has proved, shape it into 30 equal sized pieces and press a glass on each to make a hollow for the filling. Bake in the oven and serve warm.

To make Russian Cream Cheese Vatrushka Buns, you will need the following ingredients:
