  • 1 1/4 c All purpose flour
  • 1/2 ts Salt
  • 1/2 c (1 stick) chilled unsalted
  • -butter, cut into pieces
  • 2 tb (about) ice water


1 c Water
1 oz Dried porcini mushrooms
1/4 c (1/2 stick) unsalted butter
10 oz Crimini or button mushrooms
1/4 c Minced shallots
2 tb Cognac or brandy
2 tb Chopped fresh herbs
2/3 c Grated Gruyere cheese
3/4 c Whipping cream
2 Large egg yolks

FOR CRUST: Blend flour and salt in processor. Cut in butter using on/off
turns until mixture resembles coarse meal. Add enough water to blend dough.
Gather dough into ball; flatten into disk. Wrap in plastic; chill 45

Roll out dough on floured surface to 12-inch round. Transfer to
9-inch-diameter tart pan with removable bottom. Trim edges, leaving
1/2-inch overhang. Fold overhang in to form double-thick sides. Press tart
edges to raise dough 1/8 inch above pan. Chill 30 minutes.

FOR FILLING: Bring 1 cup water to boil in saucepan. Add porcini; remove
from heat and let stand 30 inutes. Spoon porcini from liquid; reserve
liquid. Coarsely chop procini.

Melt butter in heavy large skillet over high heat. Add procini and crimini
mushrooms. Season with salt; saute until deep golden, about 10 minutes.
Add shallots; saute 2 minutes. Add Cognac and reserved porcini liquid,
leaving any sand behind in sauce pan. Boil until almost all liquid is
absorbed, about 3 minutes. Mix in 1 tablespoon herbs. Cool.

Preheat oven to 375F. Line crust with foil. Fill with dried beans. Bake
15 minutes. Remove foil and beans; bake until golden, about 15 minutes.
Maintain oven temperature.

Sprinkle 1/3 cup cheese in crust. Cover with mushrooms. Whisk cream,
yolks, egg and 1 tablespoon herbs in bowl. Pour custard over mushrooms. Top
with remaining cheese. Bake until filling is set and top is golden, about
30 minutes. Cool on rack 15 minutes.
