Puff Borek (Milfoy Puf Borek)

½ lb puff pastry sheets
2/3 cup feta/crumbling cheese, crumbled
1 tbsp fresh dill/parsley, finely chopped (optional)
2 tbsp yogurt for top
Nigella seeds

Thaw the puff pastry sheets according to the instructions on the package. Then cut it into 3-4 cm pieces according to shape of the borek (see the picture). I’ve made both square and triangle shapes (see the picture). Then place 1 tsp of filling in one side. You can mix cheese and dill/parsley or just use cheese. Then fold the other side over filling and stick the ends by pressing gently with your finger tips (see the picture).
Then place the puff boreks over a greased tray. Preheat the oven 400 F (200 C). Whisk 2 tbsp of yogurt and brush the surface of the boreks. Sprinkle nigella seeds and bake till they get fluffy and golden brown (about 20 minutes).
ENJOY
