What You’ll Need:
- 1 pie shell dough for a 9” pie
- 1 T. butter
- 3 large shallots minced

Step 1: Preheat the oven to 350 F.
Step 2: Spray a pie plate or tart shell with non-stick spray and gently line the pan with the pie dough.
Step 3: In a small sauté pan heat the butter and sauté the shallots until translucent. Allow it to cool slightly.
Step 4: In a mixing bowl stir the cheese, cream, eggs, and egg yolk until well blended. Stir through the basil, salt, and pepper. Sprinkle in the shallots.
Step 5: Then pour into the shell and place on the middle rack of the pre-heated oven. Bake for 40 minutes or until a knife inserted to the center comes out clean.
Step 6: Cool for 15 minutes before cutting or chill overnight and serve warmed or at room temperature.
