For the baked mature cheddar tourte

  1. In a bowl, combine the Cathedral City Mature Cheddar Cheese, Saputo Ricotta di Campagna Cheese, Saputo Parmesan Cheese, sage, and pepper. Set aside.
  2. On a clean work surface, sprinkle a bit of flour and roll out the pastry dough approximately ¼-inch thick. Using a cookie-cutter or bowl, cut out two 6-inch circles. Place one circle on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.
  3. Place the cheese mixture in the centre of the dough and, using your fingers, wet the edges. Cover the cheese with the second dough circle and roll up the excess dough to seal the tourte. Refrigerate for 10 minutes. In a bowl, combine the beaten egg with 15 ml of water. Brush egg mixture over the tourte. Bake in the centre of the oven for approximately 25 minutes, or until golden.
