- ⅜ cups cottage cheese
Drain the water from the cottage cheese, until only the curds remain
- ⅛ onion
- ⅓ tomatoes
- ¼ jalapeños
Cut the onion and tomatoes and jalapeños into tiny pieces, as if you were making pico de gallo, and mix them with the cottage cheese curds in a bowl
- ⅜ packages Premade biscuit dough
- baking sheet
Open the package of biscuit dough, and halve the pre-made rounds. (ie. if you use a five-pack of pillsbury pre-made biscuits, you should have ten rounds after going though the first container). Place half the rounds on a baking sheet, evenly spaced.
- 2 olives
Spoon a tablespoon of the cheese mixture into the center of each round on the baking tray. Place an olive on top of the cheese mixture.
- ¼ egg yolks
- smoked paprika powder
- chili powder
- Fork or whisk
Melt the butter. Whisk the egg yolks with the melted butter, paprika, and chili pepper until the mixture turns a uniformly dark red color.
Cover the rounds on the baking sheet with the other half of the biscuit rounds, pressing the edges down with a fork
- pastry brush
Paint the center of the tops of the pukacapas with the egg-butter-paprika mixture.
Preheat the oven to 375º F, then put the tray of pukacapas in the oven for 20 minutes.
Enjoy your meal!
