Pumpkin Feta Pastry

Yield: 8 servings

Prep Time: 1 hour

Level: Medium


½ package Tnuva Maadanot Frozen Rolled Short Dough for Savory Pastries

2 tablespoons olive oil
2 cups diced pumpkin
2 teaspoon sugar
½ teaspoon cinnamon
½ teaspoon ground chili peppers
1 package Tnuva Crumbled Feta
1 teaspoon each salt & freshly ground pepper
1 package Tnuva Edam Cheese Slices, cut into small pieces
½ container Tnuva Premium Cheese Spread, Original Flavor
2 tablespoons green onion, chopped

3 tablespoons olive oil
2 teaspoons za’atar seasoning
½ teaspoon ground chili peppers


1. Thaw the dough according to package directions. Preheat oven to 350 ⁰F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
2. Heat the olive oil in a frying pan over medium heat. Add the pumpkin and sprinkle the sugar and cinnamon on top. Stir. Add the ground chili and stir fry for about 6 minutes until the pumpkin is soft. Remove from the fire and let cool.
3. Transfer the pumpkin to a bowl and add the rest of the filling ingredients. Mix well.
4. Open up the dough on a floured surface so that you have a 12” square. Spread the filling over the dough, leaving about an inch all around without filling.
5. Roll up the dough jelly-roll style, and then curl into a spiral. Transfer to the baking pan. Brush with olive oil, and then sprinkle with za’atar and chili. Bake for about 30 minutes or until nicely browned.
