    Aug 1, 13 • Spirited • All recipes, PiesNo CommentsRead More »


    20 servings

    For the dough:
    6–7dl flour
    2 tsp cardamom
    1dl oil
    2dl milk
    1dl sugar
    1 tsp salt
    1 pack of dried yeast (12g)

    For the filling:
    227g tinned pineapple slices
    250g cottage cheese
    1dl sour cream
    0.5dl sugar
    2 tbsp vanilla sugar
    egg for brushing

    Mix cardamom and flour in a bowl. Add oil so that the dough turns into a crumbly mix. Blend milk, sugar and salt and heat to hand warm. Add yeast, pour into the flour mixture and knead into a smooth dough. Shape the dough into a bar, divide into twenty pieces and roll into balls. Place the balls on a baking tray, cover with a towel and allow to leaven for about an hour.

    Drain the pineapple slices and dry with paper towel. Mix the rest of the filling ingredients. Dip the bottom of a glass in flour and press hollows in the centre of the leavened balls, prick them with a fork and brush the sides with lightly beaten eggs. Place 1–1.5 tbsp of filling on each pie. Cut the pineapple slices into smaller pieces and put a pineapple piece on each pie.

    Bake in the oven at 225 ºC for 10–12 minutes. Allow to cool before serving.
