Cooking For a Cause: Round Four

Cheese Sambusak
Wednesday night was our fourth Cooking for a Cause event, run by our Helping the Hungry commission. The commission cooks for the needy in our community on Wednesday nights, after school. This week our students learned how to make cheese sambusak. Students learn to prepare a variety of entrees, dinners, and desserts while participating. All of the food prepared in these events are sent to needy families who can then enjoy delicious homemade dinners. For more information about this commission, read this previous post: 
We would like to thank our master chef: Jaime Shamosh.

Here is the cheese sambusak recipe that Jaime Shamosh shared with us from her grandmother Mary Esses:

2 glasses flour sifted
1 glass smead
3 sticks butter melted
1 tablespoon salt
Splash of oil
1/2 glass water
8 handful of cheese grated
2 eggs
Sesame seeds

To make the dough: Mix the dry ingredients in a Cuisinart and then slowly add butter, water,and oil.
To make cheese filling: Mike eggs with grated cheese.
Form dough balls with the dough, and cheese balls with the cheese filling.
Take dough ball and dip it into sesame seeds then press it in the tortilla press to make it flat.
Add cheese ball to center of dough and then pinch to close.
Freeze or bake.
