Tips for success with Westerbotten Pie

Before you start the recipe, it’s good to keep two things in mind. Below are some tips for success with Vesterbotten Pie:

pie crust nibble

Always prick the pie shells with a fork before pre-baking in the oven. If you don’t nibble the pie crust, there’s a risk of air bubbles forming, which isn’t such a good thing.

Let cool for a while before serving

When you take the pie out of the oven, the pie filling rises. Let it stand for a while and let it cool down so that it shrinks and hardens properly.

About Fusterbottenpaj

Westerbotten Pie, also known as Westerbotten Pie, Westerbotten Cheese Pie and Westerbotten Cheese Pie, is a classic on the buffet table. It can be eaten at Easter, Christmas, Midsummer or with a piece of crab.

The pie is named after the Westerbotten cheese, which has been produced at the Bertrasch Dairy since 1872.

This cheese was accidentally created by a dairy farmer, Ulrika Eleonora Lindström, and has been a big favorite in Sweden ever since.

A classic Westerbotten pie is made with a standard pie crust, grated Westerbotten cheese, whipped cream or milk and filled with whipped cream, egg, salt and pepper.

Can the pie be made the day before?

You can do it, but it’s clearly best the day you do it.

If you want to prepare a little, I can recommend making the pie dough the day before. Then follow the instructions for the pie dough and press into the pie pan. Don’t forget to prick with a fork before putting it in the fridge.

When it’s time to make the pie, take the pie pan out of the fridge, pre-bake the pie crust for 10 minutes and follow the rest of the recipe steps.
