Cooking steps

Kiri Caramel Sauce (Goo):

  1. In a saucepan, melt the sugar and add the butter, Kiri cheese, and cream
  2. Once the sauce is consistent and thick, remove it from the heat and set it aside

Beehive Dough Preparation (Crust):

  1. Roll out the beehive dough and use a round mold to cut small round pieces for stuffing
  2. Place ¼ kiri cheese square and a quarter pecan in the center of the circle
  3. Round the dough and create a ball, then place it on the baking tray or in a half crescent shape
  4. Repeat this process until you form the beehive pastry shape, leaving some space between the balls as they will grow in size after proofing
  5. Cover the tray and set it aside for 5-10 minutes until the balls almost double in size
  6. Bake until the tops are golden brown (approximately 20  mins at 180 degrees)
  7. Drizzle Kiri caramel sauce over the pastries, garnish with pecans, and serve
