  4. Season with salt and pepper, and stir.
  5. Add the thyme and ginger. Sprinkle in the flour and stir until the mixture begins to thicken. If it becomes too thick, add the white wine.

  7. Beat the egg with a little bit of Extra Virgin Olive Oil from Spain and brush over the dough.
  8. Bake for 25-30 minutes until the pastry is golden.
