how to cook Easy Orange Cheesecake Buns?


Творожные плюшки 6

To start, preheat your oven to 175°C (350⁰F). Follow the instructions on the package to thaw the rich yeast dough. Once thawed, divide the dough into 12 equal parts and shape them into balls.

TIPS: When at the store, you can conveniently purchase pre-made balls of rich yeast dough.

Next, grease a baking sheet with vegetable oil and line it with parchment paper. Place the dough balls onto the prepared baking sheet. Cover the sheet with cling film and let the dough rise for about an hour in a warm, draft-free spot. Ideally, the temperature should be around 25°C (77⁰F).

TIPS: If you don’t have cling film, a clean kitchen towel can be used to cover the dough.

In a large bowl, combine ricotta, yogurt, and orange juice. Use an immersion blender to mix everything until it becomes creamy and smooth.

TIPS: You can use cottage cheese instead of ricotta. But remember, the quality of your cottage cheese matters. Opt for a fatty, non-acidic, and not overly dried variety. This will ensure a velvety and tender texture for your filling. Trust me, it’s worth it!

TIPS: If you’re lacking an immersion blender, fear not. Simply rub the ricotta or cottage cheese through a fine sieve a couple of times until you achieve the desired consistency. Patience pays off!

In a separate medium-sized bowl, beat the eggs and sugar together with a mixer until they form a fluffy, pale mixture.
