Quark-tasche ( German Cheese Pastry )

70 mins (prep 20, cooking 50)
5 ingredients
8 servings
Many years ago while on vacation in Munich, Germany, I stopped in a bakery for a snack. The pastry I had has stayed at the back of my mind for about 10 years now. This is my attempt at re-creating it. It is still kind-of a work in process, so please feel free to add more sugar or lemon juice as you like.
