Triunghiuri cu ricotta/ Mini ricotta triangles

(Please scroll down for English version)

Provocarea lunii septembrie la "Vinerea foarte dulce" a fost: deserturi dintr-o imbucatura. Ceva dulce, vegetarian, care sa fie mancat dintr-o bucata (sau 2). Dupa putin "brainstorming" cu prietena mea, Mariya, am decis sa fac aceste triunghiuri cu aluat foietaj si branza ricotta.

Au iesit delicioase, singura mea problema (fiind prima data cand le fac) a fost ca umplutura a curs putin. Am folosit aluat cumparat. Am in plan in viitor (mai indepartat :)) sa incerc sa fac aluat in casa, deocamdata am folosit cumparat.

Incepe sa imi placa "Vinerea foarte dulce", ma face sa ma gandesc si sa inventez ceva, si abia astept provocarea lunii viitoare.


2 foi de aluat foietaj (cumparate sau facute in casa)
unt pentru uns tava
1 cana (250 ml) branza ricotta
2 linguri de zahar
2 oua
1/4 cana afine (proaspete sau congelate)

Daca aluatul este congelat, se lasa sa se dezghete in frigider, sau la temperatura camerei (dupa instructiunile de pe pachet).

Se incinge cuptorul la 200 grade Celsius (400 Fahrenheit).

Pentru umplutura, se amesteca ricotta cu zaharul si 1 ou, pentru 1-2 minute pana cand se topeste zaharul si mixtura devine cremoasa. Se adauga vanilia si afinele, se amesteca pana cand se incorporeaza.

Se unge o tava cu unt sau se tapeteaza cu hartie de pergament.

Se presara putina faina pe o plansa si se intinde o foaie de aluat si se taie in patrate cu latimea de aprox 5-6 cm. Se pune o lingurita de umplutura in mijlocul patratului.

Se ia unul din colturi si se indoaie peste coltul opus, obtinandu-se un triunghi. Se lipesc usor marginile si se apasa pe margini cu varful unei furculite.

Se aseaza in tava, si la fel se procedeaza cu restul de aluat.
Se bate un ou cu putina apa, si cu o pensula se ung toate triunghiurile.

Se baga in cuptorul incins pentru 15-20 minute, pana cand se rumenesc.

Pofta buna!

The September theme for “Sugar High Friday” was: One bite desserts. Something sweet, vegetarian, that can be eaten in one bite (or two). After little brainstorming with my friend Mariya, I decided to make these mini triangles with puff pastry and ricotta cheese.

The triangles turned out delicious, my only problem (being the first time I made it) was the filling came out a little bit. I used store bought puff pastry. I’m planning in the future to make my own puff pastry, but for now I used store bought.

I start liking “Sugar High Friday”, it makes me think and invent something, and I can’t wait for the next month challenge.


1 package puff pastry (2 sheets)
Butter for greasing the baking sheet
1 cup ricotta cheese
¼ cup sugar
2 eggs
¼ cup blueberries (fresh or frozen)
Vanilla extract

If the puff pastry is frozen, follow the package instruction for defrosting.

Preheat the oven at 400 degrees.

For the filling, mix the ricotta with the sugar and 1 egg, for 1-2 minutes until the sugar dissolves and the mixture becomes creamy. Add the vanilla and blueberries and mix only until incorporated.

Grease a baking sheet with butter or line with parchment paper.

Sprinkle a little flour on a board and spread one puff pastry sheet. Cut in squares of 2-2.5 inches. Place one teaspoon of filling in the middle of one square. Lift one corner and fold over the opposite corner, and we have a triangle. Press together the edges and press it with a fork.

Place in the baking sheet. Repeat with the rest of the squares.
Beat the remaining egg with little water and brush the triangles with the mix.

Place in the preheated oven for 15-20 minutes, until golden brown and delicious.
