This is very good. If you cannot find Gouda cheese you can substitute Edam cheese.


  1. Seperate dough into triangles.
  2. Arrange triangles on a non stick baking sheet with the points toward the center forming a rough circle.
  3. Press edges together to seal.
  4. Peel wax from cheese.
  5. Place cheese in the center of the dough circle.
  6. Fold dough over cheese and press seams together.
  7. Completely closing the cheese in.
  8. Bake 20- 30 minutes, or until the cheese melts.
  9. Remove from oven and let stand 10 minutes before serving.
  10. Cut into 10-12 wedges.

This is good. I sometimes spread a little Dijon mustard and sprinkle some caraway seeds on top of the cheese before wrapping in the dough. We've even topped the cheese with a large mound of finely chopped pepperoni. Also, if you save some of the dough you can braid it to put on top before baking for a little decoration. I've shaped the spare dough to look like holly leaves during the holidays and rolled a little of the dough into tiny balls for the holly berries. It really does make a nice presentation.

Great basic recipe! Quick and easy. It took 30 minutes in my oven. Everyone liked it; it doesn't last long. If you want to jazz it up, see #255396 - it's a little more work though. Thanks for posting.
