Cottage cheese pie with leek and pine nuts


Ingredients for 4 servings:
1000 g of flour
350 g of Mu Cuisine butter
100 g of yolks
20 ml of salted water
100 g of Mu Cuisine butter
180 g of Jošt cheese
250 g of Mu Cuisine cottage cheese
2 eggs
100 g of fresh leek
40 g of roasted pine nuts
100 ml of Mu Cuisine sweet cream
100 ml of Mu milk


Put the diced butter, yolks and salted water in the sieved flour and knead the ingredients into dough. Make a roll out of the dough, cover it with a wet cloth and put it in the fridge for a good hour. Roll out the dough on a floured board to a thickness of a centimetre. Place it in a well-greased baking tray and half bake it – approx. 20 minutes – in a medium hot oven.

Prepare the filling from grated cheese, pressed cottage cheese, yolks, leek braised on butter, roasted pine nuts and sweet cream. Salt to preference. At the end, gently mix the hard whipped egg white and milk into the filling.

Cover the half baked dough with the filling and decoratively place the braised leek slices on top and bake until done: approx. 20 minutes at 180 °C. Serve the pie still hot as an independent meal or as a side dish.
