Being Bulgarian I was raised to love our cuisine.  One of the things I miss the most is the little bakeries located almost everywhere, offering traditional breakfast pastries. Sadly, we don`t have Bulgarian restaurant here in Dubai, but few years ago I discovered Turkish food. Little I knew of how similar these two are. In fact we share names of recipes and you guessed it- breakfast!

The recipe I present you today is called Sivas katmeri and its layered dough with butter. I wouldn`t say it`s difficult to make, but it takes some time in the kitchen. Find the recipe below and go through the pictures in the gallery to see how it`s made.

Preparation:

  1. I used the same dough recipe, with which I made the mekici.
  2. Let the dough rest until double in size (45 min. to 1 h)
  3. Cut the dough in 4. You will need two  for each sivas katmeri
  4. Roll the dough until 0.5 cm thin, brush with melted butter and fold like an envelope
  5. Roll second dough, brush with butter and put your first envelope dough in the center
  6. Fold around it and brush generously with butter
  7. Make two sivas katmeri and gently roll them to 1 cm thickness
  8. Place in baking tray, covered with baking paper
  9. Score the dough with sharp knife
  10. Brush with butter and bake at 180 degrees for 45 min. or until golden
  11. I like to serve it with jam, white cheese and herbal tea
