Ingredients
Dough Ingredients:
  • 1.5 cups fine whole wheat flour
  • ½ cup all purpose flour
  • pinch salt
  • ½ tsp sugar
  • ⅓ cup extra virgin olive oil, or a light tasting one of your choice
  • ⅓ cup cold water, plus extra if needed
Filling and Topping Ingredients:
  • 2 medium Granny Smith apples (weight was 400g), cored and thinly sliced
  • 1 tbsp apple cider vinegar
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • ground cayenne to taste (I added ½ tsp)
  • salt, to taste
  • 100 gm goat cheese log, full fat is best
  • Amelia's Spicy Spicing Pecans*
  • whole milk or egg wash for brushing
Instructions
Pastry Dough Instructions:
  1. Mix both flours, salt and sugar until well combined. Make a well in center and add olive oil and water. Mix and knead into a smooth dough. Use your hands to gather the dough into a ball. Wrap with plastic wrap or place inside a plastic bag. Leave to rest in the refrigerator for 30 minutes.
Assemble:
  1. Remove the dough from refrigerator and preheat the oven to 375F or 190C. In a small bowl mix apple cider vinegar, olive oil, cayenne, and salt until well combined. Then gently toss with the sliced apples making sure they are coated nicely. Set aside.
  2. Roll dough into a large circle and to your desired thickness. Crumble and spread goat cheese around center, but leave about 1 inch or 2.5 cm of outer dough to be folded over later. Next arrange the apple slices on top of goat cheese, use as many as you like. Fold the extra outer dough over the toppings. Brush the dough with a little whole milk or egg wash. Bake in center of oven for 25-30 minutes or until the dough feels crispy and is golden brown.
  3. Allow to cool for 10 minutes, and right before serving top with the spicy pecans.
