Gluten-free minced meat pie

Quark-butter dough
 250 g butter/margarine
 15 ½ dl Virtasalmen Viljatuote's gluten-free all-purpose flour mix
 1 tsp baking powder
 250 g quark
 1 egg for glazing
 400 g minced beef meat
 1 onion minced
 1 garlic glow minced
 1 dl porridge rice
 ¾ tsp salt
 1 tsp black pepper
 1 tsp paprika powder
 2 boilled eggs (optional but recommended)

Quark-butter dough
Pinch the butter and dry ingredients into a crum dough. Add quark but don't knead the dough. Place in fridge and make the filling.

Cook the rice in approx. 2 dl water. Cook the minced meat with onions and spice well. Smash the eggs with a fork. Mix rice, meat and egg together.

Putting together
Roll the dough on baking paper to the size of the oven tray. Use flours if needed. Spread the filling on half of the dough. Flip the other side on top of the filling. Close the edges carefully with a fork. Brake the egg in a glass and glaze the top with it. Punch little holes with a fork on top. Bake in 200 degrees for approx. 20-25 minutes.
