2. Cooking the dough. Sift the flour through a sieve. We hold the butter for a little in the freezer so that it hardens and can be easily rubbed on a grater. Rub the butter with thin shavings directly into the bowl with flour.

3. Add sour cream, salt, baking powder here and mix. When the ingredients begin to mix well with each other, quickly knead the dough. You can’t mess with the dough for a long time so that the butter does not melt in it from the warmth of your hands.

6. After the dough has stood for 30 minutes, then transfer it to the table and then divide it into 4 equal koloboks. We will form mutaki from one kolobok, and cover the remaining three koloboks with a film from weathering.

7. Roll out the ball into a thin layer (circle shape), about 26-28 cm in diameter. Divide it into 8 triangles of the same size.

8. Put 1 teaspoon of nut filling on the wide part of the dough triangle. We tuck the ends of the triangle onto the filling (so the filling will not flow out of the blanks and the melted sugar in the oven will not burn), and the mutaki will be neater. Next, we wrap the blank with the filling according to the croissant principle, with a bagel. We hide the sharp tip of the triangle under the bottom of the bagel. In this way we wrap all the blanks.
