These buns are so easy and fast to make. The dough is made with cream cheese and baking powder (no waiting and rising needed) and it’s delicious. I got this recipe from a friend;  from then on, I’ve been baking them continuously. They are perfect for parties or surprise guests. I recommend you double all ingredients and make more than suggested in this recipe, they are so good!

Recipe Type: Baking
Ingredients
For the dough
  • 2.5 cups (250 g) all purpose flour
  • 3 tsp baking powder
  • ½ cup (125 g) cream cheese
  • 3 tbsp (50 ml) milk
  • 3 tbsp (50 ml) vegetable oil
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 egg white
Optional: for the filling
  • grated cheese, ham cut into small cubes, cottage cheese...
For the glaze
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 1 tbsp milk
  • sesame or flax seeds
Instructions
  1. Sift flour and baking powder, add the rest of the ingredients, combine and knead until it forms into a smooth dough.
  2. Preheat oven to 180°C (355°F)
  3. Roll out dough on floured surface and cut into squares. Then cut each square crosswise, into a triangle. Fill it with cheese, or ham...or you don't have to fill it with anything, they're delicious anyway. Roll into little buns (like croissants). I cut one part of the dough and formed it into little shells (press edges with fork). Brush them with mixture of whisked egg yolk and milk, sprinkle with sesame and/or flax seeds.
  4. Bake for 30-40 minutes.

    1. I could not agree with you more, Dominique! There must be something missing in the ingredients or the directions, because there is absolutely no way this dough could hold together! By far the worst cheese bun recipe I have ever come across!

  1. So sorry to hear that, as I make these quite often and they’re always a success. I’m guessing the measurements could be falsely translated from grams to cups. Let me try it with ounces, it’s usually more accurate: 250 g of flour is 8.8 oz. 125 g cream cheese is 4.4 oz.
    Usually, if the dough is too crumbly, just add more milk or water to achieve compact consistency.

  2. Just came out of the oven. They smell wonderful, and taste great too! Going to try adding some sharp grated cheddar or maybe even Gorgonzola as a filling next time to get a more cheesy taste. Super simple to make as well. Thanks for the recipe.

  3. The dough didn’t come together, so I added more milk. They smell good, but a bit too salty for us. Just wonder, no sugar required for this recipe?

  4. There is a typo mistake in the recipe. 2.5 cups of flour is not 250 g but 625g. If the recipe calls for 250g of flour, that is only 1 cup
