100g sugar

2 small eggs

50g raisins

4 tbsp semolina

Every time I travel to the Danube Delta, I savour this Dobrujan pie.

I’ve always wished to bake it at home, using homemade pie sheets. It seems difficult but isn’t!


At first, make the filling, mixing the cottage cheese, sugar, eggs, raisins, and semolina (which thickens the filling). Let the filling sit in the fridge for 10 minutes.

In the meantime, make the dough for the pie sheets, mixing the flour, salt, butter at room temperature, water, and vinegar. Knead and split the dough into 4 equal parts. Roll out the first as thinly as you can, cover the bottom of the baking pan and leave the edges spill outside the pan.

Roll out the dough

Spread the cottage cheese mix, roll out another sheet, spread the cottage cheese mix again, and repeat this step one more time, then cover with the last sheet and fold the edges of the first sheet on top of the pie.

Spread the cottage cheese mix

Mix the egg with the vanilla sugar and brush the pie with it.

Brush the egg and vanilla sugar mix onto the pie

Bake at 180°C, in the preheated oven, for 35 minutes.


This dessert tastes of summer and sunshine! ☼
