So Pogácsa is a "national dish" for Hungarians. Ask any Hungarian if they know what Pogácsa is? You will have an ohhhh, áhhhh I love them. That is all you need to know before making this. Pogácsa or Cheesy scones usually requires at least 1-2 hours rise time, but not this one...So you can make this even if you are in a hurry. I got this recipe from a Hungarian blogger (Kriszta konyhája). Enjoy.
Cheesy Scones/ Sajtos Pogácsa
250g butter at room tempeature
2dl soured cream
150g grated smoked cheese
2 tsp salt
For the top
2 egg yolks
Preheat the oven to 180C.
Mix all ingredients in a bowl to form a dough.
On a floured surface roll out the dough to 2cm thick and with a cookie cutter cut 3cm rounds.
Transfer them on a baking sheet, then apply the egg wash on top and add a pinch of grated cheese on top.
Bake it for 20-20 minutes or until the top is golden brown.
In the end I made this batch of Cheesy Scones and a batch of Crackling scones...this is how we went to pick up my mum and my sister from the airport (in case they are hungry:) Typical Hungarian attitude to guests:) By the way at the time when I made the picture the other batch of crackling scones was still in the oven.
