Melony Juice And Cheesy Bites

     Once upon atime, I went to the kitchen. What happened! You know, food. It was a quiet, very hot, very humid afternoon, and I was craving some pastry and a quenching juice going down my throat that makes me say AHHH!

Watermelon and Blackbery Juice :

Summer and watermelon, watermelon and summer, always related, but to me it is an all-year-round fruit. I am a watermelon addict, I am pro watermelon ,  I think I am a watermelon! I have never tried drugs, but I think this fruit is a drug, it has an instant effect, it makes me swoon :~

Both watermelon and blackbery are full of vitamins, minerals and antioxidants, who does not want that in his/her body!

Ingredients: Watermelon + Blckbery : )

Blend the two until they become one ( words of wisdom :$ )

To get rid of the pulp and  blackbery seeds, bring your strainer. Bring a bowl and place it under the strainer and pour the juice. Then with a spoon, stir the pulp just to get all the juice left. The, put it in the fridge.


Cheese Puff Pastry:

You need:

Puff Pastry
Cheese (any type)
Muffin Pan

I must confess that this is the first time in my life to deal with a dough, and even though this is a ready-to-bake, it was a bit messy for me, but turns out great  :-}

I used Pepperidge Farm Puff pastery, I wanted the ones that are already cut into small squares, but only found this one which comes in two huge sheets that are folded and frozen, who ever folded these is an evil human...

I placed one sheet on the counter to thaw at room temperature for 40 mins. But to unfold it, it has to be done before it is fully thawed.

When it is ready, sprinkle some flour on the surface before placing it so it won't stick. then cut it the way you want. I cut it into squares.   


Then, I placed the squares in a muffin pan.

Time to prepare the cheese. I used 3 kinds : Nabulsi cheese( which is originated in Palestine, it is semi-hard and salty, becomes soft when heated) + Cream cheese + Mozzarella

I mixed the Nabulsi with 1tbsp of cream cheese .
And meanwhile, preheat the oven at 400F.

Then, place the filling on the center of each square and top it with shredded Mozzarella. 

Fold the edges of the squares, and try to seal it a bit with your finger.

Pop it in the oven and let it bake for 15-20 mins, or until puffed and golden.


   enjoyed it with a glass of the most refreshing, earthy, quenching juice . The end.
