Cheese Danishes

Ingredients (makes 6 balls, each ball makes ’bout 12 danishes. Dough freezes very well):
  • 10 cups flour
  • 2 cups margarine
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 4 packages dry yeast
  • 5 eggs
  • 2 Tbsps vanilla
  • 2 cups water
Filling (enough to fill 50 danishes):
  • 22.5 oz farmer cheese
  • 2 eggs
  • 1.5 cups sugar
  • 1 Tbsp grated lemon rind (I skipped)
  • 1 Tbsp vanilla
  • 1/2 package instant vanilla pudding mix
Directions:
  • Knead all ingredients into an elastic dough. Lightly flour the top, cover with a dishtowel and refrigerate for 5 hours
  • Mix filling ingredients until smooth
  • Divide dough into 6 balls. Roll out each ball on a floured surface, into a 12″ x 12″ square. Cut into 9-12 squares.
  • Fill each square with a heaping teaspoon of filling
  • Fold up like an envelope and pinch the edges to firmly close
  • Use a toothpick in the middle to hold it closed
  • Brush with egg and bake at 375 for 25 min or until it gets lightly brown
  • Once it cools you could sprinkle with icing sugar
