Shanezhki Russian Cheese Pastry (Шанежки) with Farmer's Cheese is a mouthful to pronounce, but so delicious! A baked brioche style yeast bun generously smothered with sweet Tvorog, Farmer's Cheese or Quark and baked with fresh strawberries.
Place sweet dough ingredients in the order listed up into your bread machine and select the dough program. It will take around 90 minutes to complete the cycle.
When the sweet dough is ready, place on a floured surface and gently knead. Cut the dough evenly in half. Place both dough pieces on parchment paper on a baking tray. I use 2 trays. Using your hands, stretch and pat the dough into a round 30cm diameter round shape. Place the half of the tvorog cheese mixture on each of the round dough pastries, leaving a small border. Randomly cover the tvorog mixture with sliced strawberries.
