Place the dough sheets on the prepared baking tray with some distance to each other and cover with a kitchen towel, then leave to rest for 30 – 45 minutes in a warm place. Meanwhile, put all ingredients for the streusel in a mixing bowl and knead with your hands to a crumbly streusel dough.

Preheat the oven to 180°C (top/bottom heat) in good time. After the resting time, garnish the yeast dough sheets with a handful of red currants (press the berries a little bit) and then top generously with the prepared sprinkles.
