and the winner is ! ! !

thanks to those of you who left a comment. we have a winner, it is BARB from funwithbarbandmary . a blog that i have found recently on one of my journeys! having done the candied hexagon quilt myself some years ago, i was interested to see the version that barb and mary have as a banner for their blog, i think i may do another, always been tempted. i will call mine 'some of my favourite things', i have some fabrics saved or put aside while the thought roams around in my head. congratulations barb, i will send you some of our treasures soon.

for all of the 'losers', sorry, i will share the recipe for the cheese pie.


ingredients: you will need 2 eggs, 600mls of light cream, 3 different cheeses  (approx 750grms, depends on the size of your dish & i play with the combinations) and encourage you to do so, however i usually combine grated cheddar, mozzarella and fetta, pepper and salt and shortcrust pastry. i usually just buy the pastry sheets. unlike making a quiche, you should have more cheese than custard !

line your favourite pie dish with the pastry and trim, and fill with your cheese ( amounts of cheese are not scientific). whisk the two eggs and the cream together with the pepper and salt and pour over the cheese in the dish. very simple !

place in a hot oven for about 10mins (200c), then turn down to 150c and cook for approx 45 minutes to 1 hour, depending on your oven. it will come up a bit like a souffle and split. it is better cooked , then allowed to settle and served warm or cold with a lovely fresh green salad.

enjoy, it is not printed in a book or anywhere as far as i know, another one of my cousins made one years ago and i have just done my own version since then, you also can experiment !
the picture of the pie is of course on the previous post.
