Panzerotti Ai Due Formaggi


14 oz. all purpose flour
4 tbsp. butter
10 oz. grated Pecorino Siciliano cheese
5 oz. cubed Cacioavallo Silano cheese
the rinds of an orange and a lemon
extra virgin olive oil

How to make the Cheese Panzerotti:

Make a dough mixing the flour, a pinch of salt and the butter cut in small pieces. Add some warm water if the dough is too dry. Cover with a damp cloth and let it rest for 30 minutes.

Meanwhile mix the grated Pecorino Siciliano cheese with the orange and lemon rinds.

Roll out the dough into a thin sheet and cut rounds about 4″ wide. Place a bit of the Pecorino Siciliano grated cheese-citrus mixture, and a small cube of the Cacioavallo Silano cheese, on each round. Fold the disc over, creating half moon shapes, and press the edges with a fork.

Fry in plenty of hot olive oil. Serve hot with honey poured over these deliciously sweet panzerotti.
