Ingredients

  • 2 cups all purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 1/4 teaspoons sugar
  • 5 tablespoons butter, cold and grated
  • 1/4 cup fresh parsley, chopped
  • 1/2 cup green onions
  • 1 tablespoon fresh thyme
  • 1 teaspoon fresh rosemary, finely minced
  • 1 cup ricotta cheese
  • 2/3 cup milk
  • 1 egg, beaten (for egg wash)
  • salt, pepper, and paprika for topping

Instructions

  • Grate the cheese and place in the refrigerator or freezer to keep cold.
  • Chop the green onions and fresh herbs. Set aside.
  • Sift together the flour, baking powder, salt, and sugar into a large bowl.
  • Add the cold butter and mix into the flour until it resembles the shape of small peas.
  • Stir in the green onions and fresh herbs.
  • Add the ricotta cheese and milk. Stir until it is all combined but do not overwork.
  • Pour the flour mixture out onto a lightly floured surface. Knead 2-3 times until it begins to form a dough. Do not overwork.
  • Press into a circle approximately 1/2 inch thick. Cut into 8 pieces as if you were cutting a pie.
  • Place each piece onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Sprinkle the tops with sea salt, black pepper, and paprika.
  • Bake in a preheated 425-degree oven for 20-25 minutes until golden brown.
