  2. Once dough comes together, turn out onto a floured surface and knead lightly so that you have a flat ball. Dust the top with flour. Cut a cross in the top. Place in a pie pan.
  3. Bake at 325 for 55-60 minutes. Check with a toothpick. Bake up to another 10 minutes if needed until toothpick is clean or just has a few crumbs on it. Serve warm or at room temp. Toast leftovers and serve with Kerrygold butter and strawberry or strawberry rhubarb or raspberry jam.
