Cooking in Denmark

Braden and I had a cooking class today with a staff member's girlfriend. It was a lot of fun. I have missed cooking a lot and learning how to cook new things, so this was a great experience. We made a Swiss tarter; it was really good and I wanted to share it with you all.

Swiss tarter
2 cups of flour
½ teaspoon salt
2 and a half tablespoons butter
7 tablespoons water
1 tablespoon vinegar

Mix salt and flour together. Cut the butter into the flour mix. Crumb the dough.
Add the water and vinegar work it into dough. Let sit 15-30 minutes.
Roll dough out and put into a pie pan; shape edges with the back of a butter knife.

3 spoons of bread crumbs
3 shallots (small onion)
Put the bread crumbs on top of the dough and onion on top of the breadcrumbs.

3 cups of milk
2 eggs
300 grams grated white cheddar or Swiss cheese
1 tablespoon of flour
1 pinch of nutmeg
Put mix on top of the onions. Slice up little tomatoes and lay them on top.

Bake at 325 degrees for 30-40 minutes or until crust is golden brown and top layer of cheese is crispy.
Let cool for 10 minutes so it can harden, then slice and enjoy.

Was this kind of like a little quiche-y pie?
