Recipe for 6 small pies or 1 large pie
Prep time 45 minutes + 60 minutes cooking
. Ingrédients for pastry
500 g of T65 flour
250 g cold unsalted butter
1 pinch of salt
4 tbsp of water or milk
. Ingrédients for filling
500 g firm potatoes (charlotte type)
500 g butternut squash
2 red onions
150 g cheddar cheese
50 g blue cheese (optional)
25 cl of Isigny-type heavy cream
1 to 2 tablespoons of brown sugar
salt and pepper
1 beaten egg for the gilding
The day before or a few hours before, prepare the shortcrust pastry
In the bowl of the food processor or by hand in a salad bowl, combine the flour, salt, cold diced butter and egg. Once the mixture is a bit sandy (like a crumble), add the milk or cold water. A ball will form, reserve it in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes
Peel the potatoes and put them in a saucepan of cold salted water. Bring to a boil and cook for about 20 minutes, until the tip of a knife engages easily. Drain them and cut them into slices
Peel the butternut, cut it into cubes and steam it for about ten minutes
Slice the onions and brown them in a pan in a little oil and brown sugar to caramelize them
Preheat your oven to 180 ° C. Roll out a dough and line it in a loaf pan with removable bottom of about 24 cm or in 6 small individual molds, without buttering the mold. Reserve the remaining dough
Garnish the pie: first the potato slices, onions, butternut, grated cheddar cheese (optional blue cheese) and then the crème fraîche. Add salt and pepper.
Roll out the remaining dough and cover the filling, join the two doughs on the sides. With the remaining dough, braid strips of pasta to add on top. Make small incisions with the tip of a knife to allow the air to escape.
Brush on the beaten egg. Bake halfway up for 50 minutes to about 1 hour.
Notes et suggestions!
Enjoy hot with a winter salad like "Red and orange salad" (treviso chicory, oranges and beets, the recipe for which we will give you shortly ...) and a red wine such as Santenay or Coteaux d'Auxerre.
