In September the trees are heavy with ripe nuts in the Netherlands – making this particular month absolutely ideal for a delicious cheese tart with walnuts and grapes!
1 pack of Koopmans savoury pie mix
50 grams of butter or margarine
50 ml of water
2-3 tbsp. of breadcrumbs
75 grams of Leerdammer cheese (sliced)
75 grams of Dutch goat’s cheese (sliced)
75 grams of semi-mature Gouda cheese (sliced)
150 grams of Old Amsterdam cheese (grated)
50 grams of raisins
100 grams of walnuts (chopped)
250 grams of white grapes
150 ml of milk
First preheat your oven to 200 C. Meanwhile place the savoury pie mix, butter and water into a mixing bowl and knead into a smooth dough. Cover and leave to stand at room temperature for 10 minutes. Next grease an oven dish or spring form cake tin with a little butter and cover with a thin layer of dough. Sprinkle with breadcrumbs and coat with half of the sliced cheeses. Cover with half of the chopped walnuts and raisins, as well as the remaining cheese slices. Top with the rest of the raisins and nuts. Now pop the milk, eggs and the sauce mix (found in the savoury pie mix pack) into a mixing bowl and whisk for 1 minute. Finally pour this mixture over the tart and scatter over the grated cheese. Bake for approximately 30 minutes or until golden brown, and serve with a fresh green salad.
