Pork Crisps and Farmer’s Cheese Scones / Pogačice sa čvarcima i svježim sirom

My parents me gave a bunch of pork crisps which, honestly, weren’t that great to munch on. So, instead of throwing them out, I decided to bake them into scones. These scones turned out super flakey and delicious and were really easy to make, so I definitely suggest you try them out.

METHOD:

Throw the pork crisps into a food processor and pulse into a paste. Add in lard, eggs, cheese and buttermilk, then pulse until combined.

In a large bowl, whisk together flours, baking powder, salt and pepper. Add in the liquid ingredients, then stir everything together until a shabby dough forms. Dump everything on a clean work surface, then knead briefly. Don’t work the dough too much, just until everything comes together. Divide the dough into two, shape into discs, then wrap each disc tightly into cling foil and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes and up to two days in advance.

When ready to bake, preheat the oven to 180°C. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper, then set aside. Roll the dough out between two sheets of parchment paper and cut into scones. Optionally, brush each scone with whisked egg and sprinkle with toppings. Spread the scones on a prepared baking sheet and bake for 20-30 minutes, until deep golden brown. Serve warm.

You can reheat these again in a microwave or in the oven. The scones will keep tightly wrapped and refrigerated for up to 3-4 days.

Moji su mi mama i tata dali nešto čvaraka, koji iskreno na žalost baš i nisu bili najfiniji. Umjesto da ih bacim, odlučila sam probati čvarke iskoristiti za čvarkuše. Drago mi je da sam tako napravila, jer su peciva ispala baš fina i hrskava, a još su uz to bila i jako jednostavna za pripremiti.

SASTOJCI:

(Za 20 čvarkuša / 1,69 kn po čvarkuši / 33,82 za sve)

Za tijesto:

2 šalice čvaraka (15,00 kn)

2 žlice svinjske masti (0,20 kn)

2 jaja (3,00 kn)

1 šalica svježeg sira (6,00 kn)

1 šalica kiselog mlijeka (3,00 kn)

2 šalice glatkog brašna (1,00 kn)

2 šalice integralnog brašna (1,50 kn)

1 žličica praška za pecivo (0,10 kn)

1 žličica soli (0,01 kn)

1 žličica svježe mljevenog crnog papra (0,50 kn)

Po želji za posipanje:

1 jaje (1,50 kn)

2 žlice sezama (0,50 kn)

2 žličice kima (1,00 kn)

1 žličica svježe mljevenog crnog papra (0,50 kn)

½ žličice soli (0,01 kn)

PRIPREMA:

Čvarke ubacite u multipraktik i propulsirajte u pastu. Dodajte mast, jaja, sir i kiselo mlijeko, pa pulsirajte dok se sve ne sjedini.

U velikoj zdjeli pomiješajte skupa oba brašna , prašak za pecivo, sol i papar. Dodajte unutra tekuće sastojke i miješajte dok ne dobijete labavo tijesto. Sve iskrenite na čistu radnu plohu, pa kratko mijesite. Nemojte previše mijesiti tijesto, već samo onoliko koliko treba da bi se sve sjedinilo. Podijelite tijesto na dva dijela, pa svaki dio oblikujte u zaseban disk te ga čvrsto umotajte u prozirnu foliju. Stavite u hladnjak na barem 30 minuta, a do dva dana unaprijed.

Kada ste spremni za pečenje zagrijte pećnicu na 180°C. Protvan obložite papirom za pečenje i stavite na stranu. Tijesto razvaljajte između dva lista papira za pečenje te ga režite u pogačice. Po želji pogačice premažite razmućenim jajetom i posipajte ostalim dodatcima. Pogačice raširite po pripremljenom protvanu i pecite 20-30 minuta, dok ne budu zlatno-smeđe. Poslužite toplo.

Čvarkuše možete bez problema podgrijati u mikrovalnoj ili u pećnici, a držati će dobro zamotane u hladnjaku barem 3-4 dana.
