- 50 g granulated sugar
- 1 tablespoon active dry yeast
- 180 g lukewarm water
- 150 g hard flour
- 150 g all-purpose flour
- 50 g butter, chilled
- 200 g butter, at room temperature
- 100g of cheese
- In a stand mixer’s bowl, add the sugar, yeast and water. Mix to combine.

- When ready, dust a working surface with flour and place dough on it.
- Cut into 4 equal sized pieces and roll out each piece to a 60x20cm sized piece.
- Spread 50 g of butter, at room temperature, over each rolled out piece of dough, sprinkle half the cheese and cut in half, lengthwise, creating two thin strips.
- Roll one strip into a tight roll and place at the edge of the second strip. Roll the second strip over roll.
- Cut the roll in half, lengthwise and roll from the side that was cut so that you can see the layers of dough.
