When the spring is cold, the warmest childhood memories come flashing back. A long time ago, cheese pie and hearty broth or lamb soup always came together. When mooma (also known as the dearest grandma) passed away unexpectedly, the recipe was gone with her. However, her secret was rediscovered.
Get ready your finest linen apron, positive energy and the following ingredients:
For the crust
- 400 g curd
- 2 eggs
- 300 g unsalted butter
- 2 teaspoons of baking powder
- 3 cups of flour
For the filling:
- 500 g Cheddar or other melting cheese
- 2 eggs
- 150 g sour cream
- 1 clove of garlic
To be honest, the pastry is the most important aspect of any pie, so be careful while preparing it. Put together eggs and curd, add melted butter. Mix flour and baking powder. Blend all the ingredients. Roll out the pastry and split it into two parts.
Fill the base of the pie with grated cheese mixed with eggs, sour cream and minced garlic. Cover with another piece of pastry, add some caraway seeds. In order to get a golden color on a pie crust, you should brush it with an egg yolk. Bake for 30-40 min at 180°C.
Set a beautiful lunch (or dinner!) table with a linen tablecloth and placemats and wait for your guests. There’s no doubt they will fall in love with this grandma’s secret pie. By the way, it is perfect both warm and cool
