DIRECTIONS

  • Make the dough: In a bowl, mix the flour and the butter with your fingers until they resemble a coarse meal.
  • Add the salt and enough ice water to make an elastic dough.
  • Shape into a ball, wrap, and refrigerate for 30 minutes to 24 hours.
  • Preheat the oven to 400°F.
  • Bring 1 quart of water to a boil.
  • Drop in the garlic and cook for 15 minutes.
  • Drain and rinse in cool water.
  • Crush the cooked garlic cloves; place in a bowl and fold in the pecorino, the pancetta, raisins, saffron, salt, nutmeg, cinnamon, ginger, and pepper.
  • Cut the dough in 2 equal pieces and roll each out into 1/2-inch thick disks.
  • Line a buttered 10-inch pie pan with 1 disk.
  • Spoon in the filling, mounding it high.
  • Top with the second disk of dough and seal the edges with your fingers; trim off excess dough.
  • Glaze the top with the beaten egg.
  • Bake for 45 minutes to 1 hour, or until golden.
  • Remove from the oven, place on a serving platter, and serve hot.
