Vegetable turnovers and Cantal fresh tome

These vegetarian turnovers, I improvised them, with leftover dough and vegetables and cheese that were in the freezer. Even if I have few things in my freezer, there are still products that I try to have all the time. This is particularly the case of the vegetable brunoise.
For the cheese, it is Tome de Cantal, which I bring directly from the producer and which I use in particular to make truffade. It is a product that can only be stored in this way. The one found in stores is not the same. So I always come back from Cantal with a good quantity of tome and I cut it into pieces to be able to use it in different preparations. Indeed, it is a cheese which, like mozzarella, finds its place in many preparations. In fact, I often use it on my pizzas. You can replace it with mozzarella.

These little turnovers can be served as an aperitif, or even for the meal.

Olive oil dough:

250g of flour

Gradually add 2 to 3 tablespoons of water until the mixture forms a ball.

Film and refrigerate for a good 1/2 hour.

To cut the dough and make turnovers. I use a small mold.

To finish: the device for making slippers is really very practical and does not cost much.
To have pretty slippers, I always recut the edges using a fluted cutter, but it is not essential.
It is also possible to make the slippers without this device.
