Nutty cheese pie

I don’t know what it is, but there is something magical about the combination of cheese and nuts, it’s dangerously good! This pie which is made of cream is very creamy, which goes very well together with the crunchy nuts.

Serves 4-5

Pastry

250 g curd
2.5 dl wheat flour

Filling

3 dl grated cheese, e.g. cheddar
3 eggs
3 dl cream
0.5 tsp herb salt
1 pinch of ground black pepper
1 pinch of ground white pepper
1 pinch of ground nutmeg

Topping

200 g hazelnuts
Oil for frying

Heat the oven to 200 °C. Knead the curd and flour and press the dough into a pie dish. Bake it in the oven for 10 minutes. Whisk together eggs, cream and spices for the filling. Spread the grated cheese in the pre-baked pie crust and pour the egg mixture over. Bake the pie in the oven for 20-25 minutes or until it is golden brown. Fry the hazelnuts in oil until they are dark brown. Let them cool slightly and coarsely chop them. Serve the pie with chopped nuts and a green salad!
