Recipe - Achma

This took a pretty long time to make.  Allot around 2 and half hours.  About a half hour of that is resting time and another half is baking, but the rest is active.

But, it's completely worth it!



  • 2 1/2 cups flour
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 3 eggs
  • 1/4 cup milk (whole is probably best, but I used 2%)
  • 1 1/2 sticks butter (3/8 cup), melted +plus more for greasing the pan
  • 8 oz bryndza, crumbled
  • 8 oz sulguni, shredded


  1. Combine flour, salt and eggs and stir until well mixed. Add the milk and kneed until a ball is formed.
  2. Cover and let rest for at least 30 minutes
  3. Combine cheeses in a bowl and mix well.
  4. Butter a 9x13 pan.
  5. Divide dough into 8 pieces. Flour well, and, with a pasta machine, roll each piece to the next-to-finest setting to be approximately the size of your pan. 
  6. Cook one pasta sheet in salted boiling water for 1 minute, shock in ice water, pat dry with paper towels, then place in the pan (cut off excess dough).  
  7. Put 1/4 of the cheese on top of this layer.
  8. Do the next layer and pour 1/4 of the butter.
  9. Keep going layer, cheese, layer, butter until you've used up all the layers.
  10. You can cook right away or prepare up to a day in advance.
  11. Bake at 400 degrees F for 30 minutes, then finish under the broiler for 2 minutes. 
  12. Cool for 5 minutes before serving.

This is how I poured the butter on.
