Here’s the translation of the recipe…

Poppy seed filling { Look files have different fillings you choose }
Nutella chocolate
Or nuts
Or cinnamon and sugar filling


Prepare the dough hook kneading with all the ingredients except the butter. Knead for at least 7 minutes to process the dough well .

The dough is processed and is slightly sticky { which is fine – not only but sticky } take the butter and start to fold it into the dough { This gives the dough to be airy especially and I strongly recommend } . When all the butter is absorbed into the dough bloat to 50 minutes in a warm place with a nylon over .

Meanwhile prepare the Filling desired…

Place on baking sheet.

Apply the filler chosen.

Leaf roll out a number 2 and place it on a raised flattened with filling.

Again , melted butter and stuffing + + leaf roll out the ball back filling.

We now have four layers of leaves at each other like the picture numbered 1.

With pulley mark lines across both sides { as appointed a number 2}.

With your fingers as before rolling all the dough edges to the left { roll twice moths three } just like a screw.

Keep it up with strips of dough until you reach the apex.

Take the pastry with baking paper and place carefully on a large baking dish.
