  • 8 oz quark
  • 3 tsp fresh lemon juice (or to taste)
  • 4 tsp sugar (or to taste)
  • 1 egg
  • 4 (8 oz) cans crescent roll dough


  1. Preheat oven to 375°F.
  2. Combine quark, lemon juice and 3-4 tsp sugar. Taste and adjust juice and sugar to taste if necessary.
  3. Add egg and stir to combine.
  4. Unroll crescents and separate into large (roughly) squares (two per package of dough). Pinch together seams as much as possible.
  5. Measure out about 2 Tablespoons of cheese mixture and place in center of square.
  6. Take hold of two opposite corners of dough and bring to a point in the center, bringing the other two corners in to meet them, so that you are left with roughly a square filled pastry.
  7. Sprinkle squares with about 1/2 tsp sugar each and bake for about 14 minutes or until browned and puffed.
  8. Allow to cool and enjoy at room temperature.
  9. Refrigerate or freeze any leftovers.
