Time needed: 1 hour and 30 minutes.
Makes: 12 pieces
3 ⅔ cups all-purpose flour
⅓ cup sugar
¼ teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon instant yeast
1 cup milk lukewarm
2 pieces medium eggs
1 stick unsalted butter or shortening
12 pieces cheese sticks 3-inch long and 1cm thick
¼ cup unsalted butter softened
¼ cup granulated sugar
¼ cup milk powder
Combine flour, sugar, and salt in a bowl and mix. Sprinkle instant yeast and mix again. Make a well in the middle of the dry mixture.
Add warm milk and eggs and beat them within the well. Once combined, mix with the rest of the flour mix to create a sticky dough.
Add the softened butter and knead within the bowl until butter is completely incorporated. Use your hands or an electric mixer with a dough hook attachment. For manual kneading, transfer the sticky dough on a greased surface and knead, using the slap and fold method, for at least 10 minutes or until smooth and has passed the windowpane test. Form into a ball and place on a bowl. Cover with plastic wrap and let it rise until it doubles in size.
Take a piece and roll it into a ball. Using a rolling pin, flatten a piece into about a 4×4-inch square.
Place a cheese stick on one side and roll towards the end tucking the sides in to fully enclose it within the dough. Repeat with the rest. Arrange the rolls in a baking sheet lined with parchment paper leaving enough spaces in between. Cover with a kitchen towel and let them rise until they double in size.
Bake at 160°C for 12-15 minutes in a preheated oven. Let cool a bit.
Brush each one with softened butter then roll it on powdered milk and sprinkle with sugar.
