Start off by preparing the dough. First, mix the white yoghurt with the egg and oil. Then add the flour, cane sugar, and knead until you achieve a slightly sticky dough. Wrap it in plastic wrap and let it rest in the refrigerator for 30 minutes.

In the meantime, let’s prepare the filling. Mix the quark with Greek yoghurt, finely grated lemon zest, and protein powder. Sweeten as needed with Flavor Drops and set it aside in the refrigerator.

Once the dough has rested, take it out of the refrigerator and roll it out on a floured surface to be thin (approximately 0.2–0.3 cm) and shaped like a rectangle. Then, cut it into 16 roughly equal squares. Place a teaspoon of the quark filling in the centre of each square, then take the corners of the squares and fold them together in the middle.

Once you have prepared the pastries this way, transfer them to a baking sheet lined with parchment paper, brush them with a beaten egg, place them in a preheated oven at 180 °C, and bake for approximately 20 minutes. Before serving, lightly dust them with powdered sugar, and enjoy!
