Recipe Type: Baking
Serves: 4
Cheese dough
  • 300g bread flour
  • 8g yeast
  • Salt
  • 100g grated cheese
  • 175g water
Sobrassada dough
  • 250g bread flour
  • 100g water
  • 125g “sobrassada”
  • 8g yeast
Nuts dough
  • 250g bread flour
  • 150g water
  • 8g yeast
  • 10g granulated sugar
  • 80g chopped nuts
Cheese dough
  1. In a bowl, whisk the flour, salt and yeast until well combined. Start adding water while stirring with a fork or a spoon. When the dough is quite solid, start turning the mixture with your fingers. The, transfer the dough to a clean working surface a bit of flour and knead for ten minutes. The dough has to be soft and not sticky. Return the dough to the bowl covered with a towel and let it rest for half an hour.
Sobrassada dough
  1. In a bowl, mix the flour, the yeast and the sobrassada with the fingers until quite combined. Add water while stirring with a spoon and then knead the dough in the surface until soft and not sticky. Let it rest for another half an hour while you prepare the other dough.
Nuts dough
  1. Proceed similarly to the other doughs and add the nuts before letting it rest for a half an hour.
When doughs are completed
  1. When finishing the third dough, the cheese dough is probably ready and almost doubled in size. In this case, with the working surface lightly floured and with the rolling pin, start rolling out the dough to rectangle of 1 centimeter of thickness. Set aside, and do the same with the sobrassada dough. However, in this case, the rectangle should be a bit smaller than the cheese one.
  2. Now, take the sobrassada dough and lay on the top of the cheese dough. With a knife, cut the sobrassada dough in four fringes, like in the video. You will have four sobrassada and cheese fringes and another cheese one. We have to put them one above the other, starting and finishing with a cheese fringe. These will be the stripes of the flag.
  3. Take the nuts dough and roll it out in a similar way as the others. Put the stripes of the flag in the center of the nuts dough and wrapped it with the dough. I am sure you now understand why I recommended watching the video!
  4. Now, cut it into slices of about 8-10 cm with a knife or dental floss and let it rest on the baking sheet for one hour. Preheat the oven at 200º and bake them for twenty minutes or until lightly brown.
