The third and last remove was "fish pie" and cabbage pastries. The pie was actually apple pie, but some people didn't even taste it because it was decorated with fish! Their loss. The cabbage pastries were the only thing that really was what it's name said, but instead of savory cabbage, they were sweet. Surprize!
(The picture is from a left over pie after transport, so the crust is a little damaged.)
The Fish pie:
Crust (American measurements, because I got the recipe from my friend):
2 cups flour
2/3 cups fat (butter or vegetable)
6-7 table spoons water (cold!)
Cut the fat and flour together, add water. Make the bottom from about 2/3 of the dough, the rest will make the lid.
about 7dl apple puree (preferably without sugar, mine was self made)
1 dl bread crumbs
(sugar, if you want it sweeter)
Mix the ingredients together, let it stand for at least 20 minutes. Make the crust, fill it and make the lid. Decorate with small fish made of rests of the dough. Bake in 180°C for about an hour or until golden.
The cabbage pastries:
Cut the cabbage to small pieces, the thinner the better. Fry them in oil/fat on a frying pan until soft. Add sugar and spices to taste. Mix in some oil/fat if too dry.
Dough: (sorry about the Finnish way of measuring in decilitres)
Makes 32 pastries.
40g fresh yeast
1 tea spoon salt
1 1/2 dl (about 140g) sugar
50 g vegetable fat (or butter)
12 dl (about 720g) flour
Mix the yeast to luke warm water. Add salt and sugar and the flour gradually. Finally add the melted fat. Let the dough rise to double size, knead it well and make pastries with the filling. Bake at 200°C for about 20 minutes or until golden.
