  7. Dice the cheese and add it to the almonds.
  8. Add the raisins too and blend it all together again.
  9. Roll out the dough into two thin rectangles and spread it with the prepared filling.
  10. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
  11. Roll up the dough on itself starting from the longer side in order to obtain two cylinders.
  12. Put it in the freezer for about 20 minutes, then cut into slices.
  13. Arrange the slices on a baking tray with wax paper and bake in a preheated oven at 200°C for 10 minutes.
  14. Turn them once and finish cooking for another 4 minutes.
