Mushroom & Leek Pie

In the Pacific Northwest, we make a savory pie with mushrooms and leeks. We prefer chanterelle, but baby portobello or oyster mushrooms will also delight your diners. —Vickie Woods, Salem, Oregon

Ingredients

  • Dough for single-crust pie
  • 12 ounces fresh chanterelle, baby portobello or oyster mushrooms, or a combination of mushrooms
  • 3 tablespoons butter, divided
  • 1 medium leek (white portion only), halved and sliced
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 4 large eggs
  • 3 tablespoons heavy whipping cream
  • Minced fresh parsley, optional

Directions

  • Preheat oven to 375°. On a lightly floured surface, roll dough to a 1/8-in.-thick circle; transfer to a 9-in. pie plate. Trim crust to 1/2 in. beyond rim of plate; flute edge. Refrigerate while preparing filling.
  • Wipe mushrooms clean with a damp tea towel. Trim stems; quarter or slice large mushrooms.
  • In a large skillet, heat 1 tablespoon butter over medium-high heat. Add leek; cook and stir 2-3 minutes or until tender. Remove from pan.
  • In same pan, heat remaining butter over medium-high heat. Add mushrooms; cook 4-6 minutes or until tender and liquid has evaporated. Stir in leek, salt and pepper. Cool slightly.
  • Sprinkle 1/2 cup cheese onto bottom of crust. Top with mushroom mixture; sprinkle with remaining cheese. In a large bowl, whisk eggs and cream until blended; pour over top.
  • Bake on a lower oven rack until a knife inserted in the center comes out clean, 30-35 minutes. If desired, sprinkle with parsley before serving.
Editor's Note
Dough for single-crust pie: Combine 1-1/4 cups all-purpose flour and 1/4 tsp. salt; cut in 1/2 cup cold butter until crumbly. Gradually add 3-5 Tbsp. ice water, tossing with a fork until dough holds together when pressed. Shape into a disk; wrap and refrigerate 1 hour.
