Oltenian pie with leeks, potatoes and cheese

Oltenian pie with leeks, potatoes and cheese with leavened dough sheets, is delicious, filling and tasty, and for me, it is a different kind of pie & # 8230It is my childhood pie and a pie with a story & # 8230

In the project initiated by Gina Bradea - Romanian tradition and gastronomy, at the challenge of June, our host Sidonia Toncean (Sidy) proposed us as the theme “Romanian traditional pies”. What kind of pie could I write about, a “tele-olteancă” get-beget, born and raised where the leek is at home?

I've also written about pies, history and tradition here, so I won't repeat myself. I'll tell you (at the risk of maybe getting bored) instead of my mother's grandmother, Ivana (God rest her!), from a beautiful and quiet plain village near my hometown, Turnu Măgurele. A story about the beautiful ritual of pies in the country & # 8230

Grandma Ivana was a great housewife and cook, a beautiful, gentle and hardworking woman, whom I adored. By the seventh grade, I was spending most of my summer vacation with her. She conquered me with her warm and gentle face, with the simple and light clothes she always wore, with the goodies she prepared for me and with which she always pampered me.

It's as if I still see the oven in "fireplace”, Always ready and hot, eager to receive large trays or clay pots with food. I will go back in time, in my childhood and I will tell you how my grandmother made this pie, or pies in general, using the terms exactly as I mentioned them at the time.

A day or two before, the ritual of pies, of bread began, and my grandmother would bring it home, in the heat, from barn, from flour box about 2-3 soffits made of wood full of flour. He then sifted all the flour with a ciurel great in a trough or temple roomy, wooden, made by my grandfather. Here the pie or bread dough was kneaded. This one trough it was kept by the grandmother with great care and care not to "get dirty", because if that happened, it could no longer be used for food preparation. It was special for doughs. To return, the flour was then covered with a towel clean and leave it in a safe place in the heat.

Grandma Ivana made both leavened pies and unleavened dough, which she called unleavened and usually baked them on hob sobei. Do you think he used yeast at the time? No way & # 8230 I never heard the word "maya" from my grandmother. She used the term "old dough"Or most often"leavened cake pans”. What were these cakes? When he made bread, he baked a roll, from which, freshly baked, he took out the core and put fresh dough in that crust. After a while (I don't know exactly how much) he put the coil in a bowl of water and left it there for a day or two. Then he crushed it, mixed it with cornmeal, kneaded it well and made some small cakes, which he then left to dry in the sun. Ehh, let's just say I've seen better.

That's why, in the evening, he would ferment these hot water cakes for the next day when he kneaded the dough. Sometimes he kneaded the bread dough in the evening and made the bread early the next morning.

I was always curious and impatient and I loved this ritual of my grandmother. It's as if I see her, and her warm, tender and dear memory rushes into my mind and fills my eyes with tears: with the sleeves on my blouse (most of the time white as milk) sumese, with fragile hands, but strong at the same time, kneading the dough in capping (bed, small bowl in which the flour or corn is sifted and the dough is kneaded).

The modeling of the dough, the spreading of the sheets or the formation of the breads was done on rag, a kind of thinner wooden bottom with a much larger surface area. For these peasant pies my grandmother used a copper tray, and for the bread she did not use any shape, only a piece of tin on which she baked. He made the salty pies most often with cheese and combined them in the same way: with leeks, potatoes, cream, onions, greens. He made the sweet ones only with apples, pumpkin and cheese. As simple as they were, her pies were as good.

What can I tell you about baking? It had an oven with fireplace brick with a test made of earth, also made by his grandfather (he was a great craftsman and housekeeper), in a special room also called "hearth". This room was basically a kind of summer kitchen, it was next to the house, but still different from the rest of the house. You're probably wondering now what it is test? It is a kind of burnt clay bell, which covers bread, pies, or any other baked goods on a hot hearth.

After the pie was ready, with a lot of leek hardened in lard (at that time), with potatoes from the garden, with cheese and fresh cow's cream, greased with a lot of egg on top & # 8230the oven had to be ready hot & # 8230How? Well, he was making a big fire in the hearth area of ​​the oven, practically under the test, after lifting test on rings (the rings that formed the chain attached to the hearth, on which the cauldrons, the copper cauldrons, the test hook, etc. were fastened) before. The fire burned until the bottom of the oven turned white, a sign that it was hot and could receive the pie, after which, the grandmother took out the embers, swept the place well with a special broom for the oven, put with the help tail rag (a wooden shovel with a tail) tray with pie in the oven and cover it with test. He then put the formed embers around the test. I don't know how much she left to bake, or how my grandmother knew that the pie was baked, I only know that I was looking forward to baking faster, that it smelled wonderful all over the house and that my taste buds were lusting at my grandmother's pies & # 8230

When the pie was ready, browned and steamed, it was placed on the table in the kitchen on a clean napkin. Do you think I was allowed to touch the pie, then? Aces! Grandma always patted me gently on the hands and with a smile on her face said to me: "Don't break it now, mother!" Let her come from the mill! ” Shall I tell you that even to this day I have not understood and had no logical explanation for this expression? I just strictly follow it and that's it. When I knew the joy and goodness that was to come, I would have accepted anything.The Turks were fighting"My, if I remember Grandma Ivana's words.

After this story of my childhood pie, I don't know if there is any point in telling you anything more about this peasant, Oltenian pie, with leeks, than that & # 8230 is delicious. Although I found leeks from that good one with a lot of weight (leeks on the market are thin and have already sprouted, being quite fibrous) at this time of year, I adapted my grandmother's recipe to today's ingredients (I used yeast, oil, I improved it with cheese), I baked it in my modern and electric oven, and my pie turned out very good, it doesn't compare to my grandmother's pie & # 8230because the taste of childhood, the unforgettable aroma of baked pies & # 8230 Grandmother's pie ritual & # 8230 these memories will always last tenderly and longingly in my heart & # 8230and & # 8230 nothing will replace them.



  • 400 gr. flour
  • 25 gr. fresh yeast
  • 200 ml of warm water
  • 50 ml oil or melted butter
  • 20 gr. sugar (approx. one tablespoon grated)
  • ½ teaspoon of salt

For the filling:

  • 2-3 leeks
  • 5-6 boiled potatoes in shell
  • 100 gr. cow telemea
  • 50 gr. pressed cheese
  • 3 eggs + 1 egg for greased
  • 200 gr. sour cream
  • 2-3 tablespoons of oil
  • salt, pepper to taste


Method of preparation

-Sift the flour into a larger bowl (I prepared the double quantity here for two pies and I was not very inspired by the choice of the kneading vessel), make a hollow in which you put the crushed yeast, sugar and a cup of lukewarm water. Mix the yeast a little, cover the bowl with cling film and a clean towel and set aside in a safe and warm place for approx. 15 minutes until the mayo increases and doubles in volume.

-When the mayonnaise has risen, add the salt and start mixing the ingredients with a wooden spoon, gathering all the flour from the edge of the bowl, gradually pour in the remaining warm water and continue mixing, until a homogeneous dough results.

-At this point, gradually add the warm melted butter or oil and start kneading the dough by hand, pouring a little more butter as we knead. Kneading the dough can be done either on the work table lightly oiled or directly in the bowl.

& # 8211 Knead the dough for about 10-15 minutes, until it no longer sticks to your hand and is compact and elastic.

-We leave the kneaded dough in the work bowl, which is covered with food foil and a clean kitchen towel and left to rise in a safe place (current) and warm for approx. 50 & # 8211 60 minutes, until it doubles in volume.

-If you have a kneading machine ("bread machine"), the preparation of the dough is much simpler and the procedure is the same as here, differing only the ingredients.

-While the dough rises, prepare the filling for the pie.

-First, wash the potatoes and boil them in their skins. When cooked, remove the potatoes from the water in which they were boiled and allow them to cool as far as they can handle. Cut the boiled potatoes into thin slices.

-Clean, wash the leeks, cut the slices and fry in a little oil. (I had just fried some chicken and for this operation I used the oil left over from the frying).

-Grate the cheese and cheese on a small grater.

-In a bowl, beat the 3 eggs, mix with the cream, cheese and grated cheese until a homogeneous composition results and set aside.

-Prepare the baking form and grease it with a little fat (oil). I used a circular tray with the size of approx. 22 cm

-When the dough has risen, turn it over on the work table sprinkled with either flour or greased with a thin film of oil. I preferred the oil version. (Because I chose a bowl that was too small and left the dough to rise for more than an hour, it stuck to the foil, and when I removed the foil I took some of the dough ()

-Divide the dough in half and spread each piece with the rolling pin in a thin, approximately round sheet (this depends on the shape and size of the baking tray). The bottom sheet stretches about 4-5 cm larger than the baking form, so as to cover the pieces and pour over the edge by about 2 cm.

-Place the first sheet in the greased baking tray, rising on the edges, leaving the excess hanging over the tray.

-Punch the sheet with a fork, put the hardened leek and season with salt and pepper.

-Put the potato slices over the leek layer, sprinkle with salt, pepper and at the end pour the egg, cream and cheese composition.

-Cover the pie with the second sheet and then fold over the edges of the first sheet. I stopped a small piece of dough from which I made a few hearts with which I decorated the pie.

-Grease the pie with the beaten (remaining) egg, mixed with a little milk, optionally sprinkle cumin on the edge and place the tray in the preheated oven at 180 ° C for about 45-50 minutes (depending on the oven), or until it browns nicely.

-After baking the pie, leave it to cool in the pan, then take it out on a wooden grill. If you want it with a softer shell, you can cover it until it cools down with a kitchen towel.

-The Oltenian pie with leeks, potatoes and cheese is served both hot and cold at any time you want and as you like: plain or accompanied by cream, whipped milk or yogurt. It is excellent cold, being also suitable for the package.

-Like preparing all the dough, all the ingredients are prepared in advance (at least 2-3 hours) to be warm, at room temperature.

-The amount of flour cannot be exact because it depends on the size of the eggs, the quality of the ingredients, etc. It is good to sift a little more flour than given.

-As it kneads, if the dough is sticky, add a little more flour.

Prepare the dough for the beginning: put the flour with 1 teaspoon of salt in a bowl and make a small hole in the middle of it.
