Okay, since I'm from Serbia I'd like to present you some of the most popular Serbian recepies. Here they are:

("gibanitza" - serbian cheese pie)

for dough:

1/2 kg flour
2 dl water
a little bit salt

for filling:

10 eggs
250 g white cheese (you can replace it with feta)
125 g unsalted kajmak* (you can replace it with cream)
125 g fat or butter
1/8 l milk

Concost water, a little bit of salt and 1/2 kg flour. You must get firmly and smooth dought. Cut dought in six peaces. Roll them thin. They have to overcast pan bottom.
Leave that slices on clean papers few hours, to dry.
You can buy ready made slices instead.
In deep bowl mix 10 eggs, add cheese, kajmak (cream), fat (or butter) and milk.

Coat pan bottom with butter or oil, then coat it with one slice and put the fill all over it (with filling). Repeat it until you have no more slices. Last slice splash with peaces of butter. Put it in the oven, which you heated before on 200°C. Bake it until top slice becomes golden like.

This is really old recipe for gibanica. Try it, and you will be more than satisfied.

*I doubt you can find kajmak in your countries because that's the Serbian product and unfortunately we hardly export it, so I'd suggest you to use a cream instead.


250 grams fat or butter
1 egg
3 yolks
1 glair
1 bake powder
200 grams sugar
1/2 kg flour

1/2 cup of milk
1 kg apples
100 grams ground nuts
50 grams curant
50 gr sugar powder
2 spoons ground rusk
cinnamon by jour choice

Puddle fat (or batter), 200 grams of sugar, 3 yolks and one egg. Add bake powder and 1/2 cup of milk. Then in this mixture concost flour. You have to get soft dought, which you can easily overrach. Coat pan bottom with fat (or batter) and mealy it. Cover with one half of dought.
Rasp apples and mix them with ground nuts, ground rusk, sugar powder and cinnamon. If you made apple mix before dought, apples will seep. If there is a lot of apple juice, add more ground rusk, to absorb it. Apple mix put over dought in the pot and cover all with the rest of dought.
Puncture top side of dought with pick and smear it with puddle glair. It will give a shine to your pie.
Bake it for 45 minutes in the oven, which you heated before on 200°C. Lazy pie chill and cut into cubes. Sow pie with sugar powder. You can serve it with cream or ice cream.

To be continueted... ;)
