Sweet boy. In the past he seemed unfazed by his potato-kale galettes going uneaten by his classmates - it's okay...the teacher and all the adults ate it, he reported. But he obviously wasn't up for the culinary rejection this time around. So, we picked up ham and cheese.
The verdict: There was not a single crumb left! And, he declared proudly, 'Some kids went back for fourths." Wow.
- 2 C white whole wheat flour
- 1/2 C ground almonds
- 3/4 C butter, chilled and cubed
- 3 T cold water
- 1 T vodka
- 2 C sliced ham
- 2 C shredded cheese
- 8 eggs
- freshly ground salt
- freshly ground pepper
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Place flour and ground almonds into a mixing bowl. Rub in butter till the mixture resembles coarse breadcrumbs. Stir in water and vodka until the mixture forms a ball. Roll the dough out between two pieces of parchment paper and place the crust into a baking pan. We used 10" heart pans for Valentines' Day! Bake for 20 minutes until golden brown.
Place ham and cheese into the crust and top with beaten egg.
