Cheese Sambusak

4 cups self raising flour, sifted
1/2 cup butter
2 tbsp avocado or olive oil
1 tsp salt
1 cup warm water

2 cups shredded mozzarella or Muenster
2 cups crumbled feta cheese
1 tsp baking powder
Pinch of white or freshly ground black
Pinch of salt
Five eggs, beaten

Place flour and salt into a bowl. Add softened butter and mix together until the mixture resembles breadcrumbs.
Add the oil and mix well. Add the water and knead the dough until it comes together and is soft and smooth.
Form a ball, cover and let rest for two hours.
While the dough rests, combine the shredded cheese, feta, baking powder and seasonings in a bowl and mix together.
Gradually add eggs, one at a time and combine until the mixture comes together, then refrigerate for 15 minutes.
Flour the counter and using the dough, form balls the size of a walnut. Place on a baking sheet.
Roll out each ball to create a thin circle.
Place a teaspoon of the cheese mixture on one half of the circle and fold over. Press the edges firmly together.
Use a fork to press down on the edges to secure the dough or make a beautiful pattern by pinching the dough.
Place each sambusak on a parchment lined baking sheet and bake at 350°F for 25 minutes or until golden.
