I have been a busy bee these days and I neglected posting here, but I have a treat for you today! My recipe for a mouth-watering, awesome-looking cheese pie for all you cheese lovers out there! It's really easy to make and can stand its own in any festive table!
Wanna know the downsides?
It has a half-life of a few minutes tops and it has a highly addictive taste!!!
1 pack of puff pastry (containing two sheets)
150g regato cheese
250g Gouda cheese
100g feta cheese
Half a carton of creme fresh
When you reach this point you have two choices. One: take the other pastry sheet, cover the pie and proceed to baking it, and Two: use the other pastry sheet to create some decoration on your pie.
I did the latter but I kinda cheated too. Take a sharp knife and cut your pastry into 2cm ribbons. Starting on one corner of the pie, lay them out in close intervals. You don't want to leave a large space of cheese mixture uncovered.
Once you cover the pie, use the remaining ribbons to the opposite direction. It should look like this.
That's the cheating part. It's not actually woven (which is nice to do but a painful and very slow process for my untrained hands) but it kinda looks like it is. Now bake it in a pre-heated oven for 30-35 minutes at 170C or until the pastry becomes crusty and gold.
I love how it looks! I love more how it tastes!
It's actually one of the tastier pies I've even made and it's the first time I wrote down the exact amount of cheese I used cause it was tasty without being salty. It was just perfect, if I may say so myself!
How much of a cheese lover are you?
