Recipe Time

Prep: 5 Minutes
Bake: 12 Minutes


2 cups all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup butter, cut into pieces
4 thin slices (about 2 1/2 ounces) prosciutto, pancetta, or ham, chopped
1/2 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese
1 1/2 teaspoons chopped rosemary
1 1/4 cups heavy whipping cream
1 egg, lightly beaten


1. Preheat oven to 450°. Combine first 3 ingredients in a food processor. Add butter, and pulse until mixture forms a coarse crumble. Add prosciutto, cheese, and rosemary; pulse to combine. Add cream, pulsing just until combined. (Dough will be crumbly.)

2. Press or pat dough into an 8-inch round, and cut into 8 wedges. Place wedges 2 inches apart on a lightly greased baking sheet, and brush tops with egg.

3. Bake 12 to 15 minutes or until golden brown.
