  • 1 basic Pie Dough Recipe, rolled out
  • 2 tbsp Butter
  • 1 lb Mushrooms, sliced
  • 1 large Garlic Clove, minced
  • Salt and Pepper, to taste
  • 1/2 cup Cream
  • 1/3 cup Milk

How to make Mushroom Pie:
  • Preheat oven to 425°F. Line the inside of a pie shell with heavy aluminum foil, pressing it against the side. Bake for 8 minutes.
  • Remove the foil; poke the bottom of the pie crust with the tines of a fork, to create air vents.
  • Return crust to oven, bake for an additional 4 minutes, or until the crust just begins to brown. Remove from oven and let cool.
  • In a large pan, melt butter on medium heat. Add mushrooms and stir to coat with the butter.
  • Stir constantly, until the moisture released by mushrooms evaporates.
  • Lower heat to medium, add minced garlic, stir with the mushrooms for 30 seconds and then remove from heat.
  • Beat together the eggs, sour cream, milk, and cream. Add freshly ground pepper, a pinch of salt, and cardamom or nutmeg, if using.
  • Stir in the grated cheese and chopped parsley.
  • Spread the sautéed mushrooms along the bottom of the pre-baked pie crust.
  • Pour the cheese and cream mixture over the top of the mushrooms.
  • Bake for 30-35 minutes, until nicely browned on top and a knife inserted in the center comes out clean.
  • Remove from oven and cool for 10 minutes, before serving.
