sift the flour, yeast, salt and sugar into a large bowl. add the oil and 
enough water to make a firm dough. knead at least 5 minutes. cover with 
plastic wrap and let rise for 1 hour. meanwhile make the filling. 
coarsely grate the cheeses. add flour and baking powder. gradually stir in 
the mint and beaten eggs until you have a stiff paste. preheat the oven 
to 450 f. divide the dough into egg size pieces. roll into 4 " discs. 
put a generous tablespoon of filling in the center of each disc and spread 
slightly. pull the dough up at 4 points to make a square. press the 
corners together to seal and let stand 15-20 minutes. brush with the 
beaten egg and sprinkle with sesame seeds over. bake 12-15 minutes until 
the cheese filling has puffed up and the pastry is golden. serve warm or 
cold.
