Hajas (Hajose)

Osanza is passed through a mincer and mixed with 250 gr of flour and 3 balls of the same size and the same quantity are formed (I weighed them). Set aside and start the dough, the rest of the flour is mixed with egg, sour cream and a pinch of salt, knead and add mineral water, one at a time. Knead an elastic dough.

So far, "no problem", then the wait begins :))), the dough obtained is spread with a rolling pin about 1 cm thick, then a ball of osanza with flour is spread on the entire surface of spread sheets. After it is greased, it is packed, we bring the top to the middle, then the bottom to the middle. Then we bring the left side to the middle and the right side, this is my way of packing, no matter which side you start with, be careful, it is important to pack as you started. It is then left to rest for 30 minutes in a cool place (in my case in the fridge).

Until then, take and read a cookbook :)))) After 30 minutes, remove from the cold and stretch again a 1 cm sheet (does not unfold, stretch like that) and grease again with a osanz ball, it is packed in the same way, as you packed for the first time and it is left to cool again for 30 minutes. After 30 minutes, do the same with the last ball and let it cool again for 30 minutes. After standing in the fridge for the last 30 minutes, remove and spread a 1 cm thick sheet, then cut with a hot knife the squares, and put a little plum jam and bend / close, pressing very easy, (eg like a book) or you can in diamonds, as it is at hand.

Place in a tray with baking paper and bake until lightly browned and open like flowers :) After baking, take out and give so hot through powdered sugar, taking care not to break are very tender.

Tips and tricks for a successful dough

This puff pastry dough is very easy to prepare, but for a sure success, certain aspects must be observed: low room temperature, correct stretching and folding, the necessary relaxation times between the folding stages, cutting with a hot knife and baking at high temperatures. . I learned from my great-grandmother Buia from Sibiu that there are 5 rounds of dough wrapping. They look great on the funny ones & # 8211 are basically the ridges that appear in the picture below.

From the same puff pastry dough, the sheets for Cremșnit, Cremeș or Krempita, the salted pies with cheese, meat or mushrooms as well as the croissants or rolls filled with vanilla cream or strawberry mousse were made from the same dough. I leave you all the recipes at the end of the article.

From the quantities below it results approx. 1.8 kg of puff pastry with osânza from which you can make 2 large sheets of Cremșnit + several pies or 50 funny ones with jam and walnut, etc. You can easily freeze some of the dough to use at a later date.
