Recipe: Kinkkupiirakka (Ham Pie)

Kinkkupiirakka is traditional finnish dish that you can serve in any occasion. Typically it’s served in parties but since it’s so easy to make, we enjoy making it during the week and eat it with a fresh salad. Most recipes you find online add normal milk in the mixture but in this recipe we are using oat milk because we think that the flavour is considerably better. (Version en español disponible.)

Ingredients (Serves 4):

For the base

  • 150g butter
  • 360g flour
  • 150ml water
  • 1 tsp. salt

For the filling

  • 250g ham
  • 150g edam or gouda cheese
  • Salt and Pepper
