Ingredients:

Dough:
1 cup of olive oil
1 cup of yoghurt
1 egg
3 tsp. bakin powder
1/2 cup of sugar
1 kg flour for all uses
orange zest (from 1 orange)
orange juice (from 1 orange)

Stuffing:
1 kg fresh mizitra
1 cup of sugar
2 eggs
1 tsp. cinnamon

 

Implementation:

Dough:
Pour the egg, the oil, the sugar, the orange zest, the yoghurt. Add the baking powder and the flour slowly. At the same time, mix with your hands to form a soft and flexible dough. Let it rest for half an hour.

Stuffing:
Combine all the ingredients in a bowl and mash them with your hands or a fork to make them creamy. Open a 3mm dough sheet and cut round leaves with a round cookie cutter. Add a spoonful of stuffing and close the lychnaraki, pinching with your hands. Pinches should be 9-11. Brush the lynchnarakia and the stuffing with eggs. Bake in a preheated oven at 180 for about 20 minutes.
