Mana'eesh (J)gibneh - Cheese Pastries

This is one of my favorite foods. Mostly because I love the dough. Traditionally it's made with Akkawi cheese but you can mix with Mozzerlla or sub If you like a lil something extra try jazzing them up with za'taar spice or some veggies. These freeze well pre baked. I have brushed them around the edges with olive oil or butter for a golden glow but not always. Play around with them to cook them to how you like. Some like a softer dough and less time in the oven and some like a crunchy dough. This dough can do either.
