Soft Potato Pogaca (Patatesli Yumusacik Pogaca)

2 medium potatoes, boiled and peeled
2 eggs
150 g butter at room temperature
2 ½ cups flour
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt to taste
1 egg yolk for egg wash
Sesame seeds or nigella seeds for top
For filling:
1 cup ricotta cheese
1 cup feta cheese, crumbled
1 cup black olives, sliced
Grate boiled and cooled potatoes. Then, combine all the dough ingredients in a big mixing bowl. Knead the dough and make it soft and elastic. Then, grab walnut size or bigger dough pieces and flatten them using your palms. Place 1 tsp of filling type you’ve chosen and close the edges in the middle making a closed ball. Then, invert the smooth part facing up and place over a greased oven tray. Brush each of them with egg wash and sprinkle with either sesame or nigella seeds or both. Bake at 400F (200C) preheated oven for about 20-25 minutes or until the tops turn golden brown. Serve hot/warm.
