Ingredients

2 lbs (1 Kg) pie dough, at room temperature
1 egg
1 tbsp (15 mL) Milk
2 tbsp (30 mL) butter
2 garlic cloves, finely chopped
8 small plum (Roma) tomatoes, halved and seeded
1 tbsp (15 mL) prepared basil pesto
Salt and pepper, to taste
5 oz (150 g) shredded Canadian Oka cheese

Preparation

Pre-heat oven to 350 °F (180 °C).

Roll dough to 1/4 inch (1/2 cm) thickness. Cut six - 5 inch (12-cm) squares. Set aside.

In a bowl, beat the egg. Add milk. Brush dough pieces with beaten egg. Fold the sides 1-inch (2 1/2-cm) to create shell with points. Brush the folded sides with beaten egg. Bake for 15 minutes.

Melt butter in saucepan and sauté garlic, simmer for about 2 minutes. Add tomatoes and cook 2 or 3 minutes. Add pesto, salt and pepper and mix gently. Remove from heat. Remove cooked pie crusts from oven and spread evenly with the pesto and tomato mix. Add grated Oka cheese. Return to oven for 2 or 3 minutes to melt the cheese.
Serve hot.
