Mottled pie

ready dough : in a small bowl mix the yeast with the sugar, a little milk and a little flour; mix well and leave to rise for 10 minutes. Separately, in a bowl sift the flour, make a hole in it and add all the ingredients; knead until the dough comes off the hands, then another 10 minutes. Let it rest for 30 minutes.

In the meantime we are preparing filling : peel the onion and cut it into small pieces; we cut the small pieces and the ham. beat the eggs well, then add sour cream, salt and pepper. Pour over finely chopped onion and bacon. Homogenize well

Divide the dough into 2 and spread 2 sheets.

Place a sheet in the tray (25x35 cm) greased with a little oil and lined with baking paper. Spread the filling over it, then the other sheet. Make small notches on the top sheet and grease with beaten egg. Bake for 30 minutes, until evenly browned.

After it has cooled we can cut it. Super good, but I really think it's even better if we heat the onion a little. : P

If you want, you can cook the onion in a little oil, then add the chopped ham and leave it on the fire for another 5 minutes. Allow to cool, then mix with beaten eggs, sour cream, salt and pepper and then fill the 2 sheets

Good appetite !

I still like to wind the country, looking for good souls and tasty recipes! And I am very happy, when I arrive in the country of Motilor, to bite hard from the pie cooked on the slab, telling where the "stone in the house" comes from. Eight years ago, at about this time, a few days before he passed away, Radu Anton Roman was invited to Apuseni, among other things, to the Garda de Sus, to a meeting of the village, where he was put - how else? - at the forefront of the dishes! He still loves to bite hard from the pie cooked on the slab, moteasca, telling everyone, with unspeakable pleasure, where the "stone in the house" comes from.

Pie stonehe said there were once dowries, in the Apuseni and in the forest parts between Beclean and the Bihor plain. No girl gets married without her slab (hence the expression "to give the stone from the house"), no cart goes to the Girls' Fair in Gaina without her pan torn from the rock.
From the shocks in Garda de Sus I also found out, about three years ago, how to make pie on stone (or slab):
Make a dough like bread, flour, salt, water and yeast and leave to rise. Then spread thinner sheets, which are greased with cheese (sweet or salty) and squeezed, gathering in such a way that the pie has a flat shape. Bake on a hot stone slab on both sides. The pie is greased, hot, with butter and sour cream and brought to the table, and they also told me about the famous "poroniu" of the Apuseni.
Prepare a tender dough from two cups of flour, two cups of lard and sour cream, two yolks, half a cup of powdered sugar, flavors. Mix the flour with the fat (lard or butter) and sour cream, add the yolks rubbed with the sugar, then the flavors. Leave it to cool for an hour, then spread out a sheet the size of a tray. Keep some of the dough. The sheet is pricked a little with a fork, then put in the oven until browned. Remove and place the desired filling on top: berry jam or sweet cheese with egg, sugar and flavors or pudding filling. From the remaining dough, from which long and thin strips are made, a grid is made that is placed on top. Put it back in the oven. (Simona Lazar)
