Ricotta & salami pie in a sweet crust

Method

  • Using your fingers, rub together the flour, sugar, vanilla, salt and butter in a large bowl until the mixture resembles breadcrumbs.  
  • Then add the egg and wine, little by little, and mix well using a wooden spoon.  
  • Shape the dough into a flat ball, wrap in kitchen plastic and refrigerate for about 30 mins to set.
  • Preheat oven to 200°C fan forced (220°C normal). 
  • Cream and fluff up the ricotta with a fork.
  • Then add the tasty cheese, salami, parmesan and a little ground pepper. Mix well with a wooden spoon and set aside. 
  • Roll out the pastry on a floured workbench. Cut a round a bit larger than your springform cake tin (or pie dish) and line the lightly oiled tin or dish, coming up the sides.
  • Spoon in the filling, flatten with a spoon and fold over the pastry. Then top with another pastry round, crimp the edges and prick a few times with a fork. Cook in the oven for about 45 mins.
  • Serve at room temperature with a simple salad on the side.
