Author: Kitchen Nostalgia
Ingredients
  • DOUGH:
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour 350 g
  • 1 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/4 cup oil
  • 1/4 cup yogurt
  • FILLING:
  • 3 eggs
  • 1/2 cup whipping cream or half-and-half 200g
  • 1 lb cottage cheese or ricotta cheese 1/2 kg
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 4 Tbsp sugar*
  • 1 Tbsp semolina
Instructions
  1. In a bowl, combine all-purpose flour with baking powder and salt. Add oil and yogurt and mix with a spoon (or hands) until you get soft dough. Cover and refrigerate for 30 minutes.
  2. Roll the dough on a floured surface. Place the dough in oiled and floured 11 inches (28 cm) round pan. The dough should be about 2 inches larger than a pan.
  3. In another bowl, whisk 2 whole eggs and 1 egg white (reserve the yolk) with a fork. Add cream, cheese, salt, sugar and semolina. Mix to combine all ingredients and pour into prepared crust.

  4. Fold the outer edges of the dough over the filling. Brush both the dough and the filling with leftover egg yolk.
  5. Bake Cheese Galette in 375 F (175 C) preheated oven for about 40 minutes. Let cool a little bit before serving.
