Bundles with puin (curd), fruit, honey and almonds
I grabbed a homemade sheep's puina (in Primorje we would say skuta) at the Zadar market during a visit to my husband's parents and in my own way revived a treat that we enjoyed in one of Rijeka's restaurants. Fast, aromatic, healthy, no excess fat, visually attractive ... we all enjoyed it
- Turn the oven to 180 degrees. Beat egg, a spoonful of honey, grated lemon zest and sugar. Meanwhile, take the vanilla pod, cut it in half, scrape off the seeds and add to the mixture. Finally add the puina and mix everything lightly.
- Dissolve the crusts for the strudel and cut out the leaves by cutting them into 6 squares (you will get a total of 48 squares from 8 sheets). Take four squares and sprinkle each with a little mineral water and melted butter, and place 4 in a muffin tin so that they make a kind of dough bowl in each mold. Spoon the curd mixture into this bowl. That way, fill all the muffin tins. Squeeze your bundles a little at the top so that the curd does not leak out and make them look nicer. Put them in the oven for about 40 minutes at 180 degrees.
- Meanwhile, wash the fresh fruit (I had raspberries) and slice the dried fruit into pieces.
- When the bundles are baked, take them out on a plate and place fresh fruits, dried fruits on them and around them and pour a little honey over them. Sprinkle with powdered sugar if desired.
You can eat bundles both hot and cold.
