After diving into the enchanted land of fatayers, a middle eastern turnover situation, I became smitten with this regional cuisine that includes flatbreads, olives, goat cheese, yogurt, sumac and lemons.
It is my hope that this simple cheese fatayer recipe, made easy due to some creative shortcuts, will entice you to dive in as well.
I have made this easy with the use of the food processor and pre-made store-bought flaky biscuit dough. You could also use store-bought pizza dough like I did with the Beef Fatayer recipe.
