    Ingredients:

    Servings:

    Units: US | Metric

    • 1 (9 1/2 inch) deep dish pie shells, unbaked and chilled
    • 6 eggs, at room temperature
    • 2 cups grated cheddar cheese (or the lesser known Emmenthal or Cantal cheese) or 2 cups gruyere cheese (or the lesser known Emmenthal or Cantal cheese)
    • 2 cups heavy cream or 2 cups half-and-half or 2 cups whole milk, gently heated just until warm
    • 1/2 teaspoon salt
    • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Preheat oven to 425°; prick the crust all over with a fork.
    2. 2
      Line it with tin foil and weight the bottom with a pile of dried beans, rice, or other weights that will sit flat on the surface.
    3. 3
      Bake 12 minutes; remove from the oven and carefully remove the weight and foil; turn the oven to 325°.
    4. 4
      In a bowl, combine the eggs, cheese, cream, and seasonings; beat until well blended.
    5. 5
      Place the baked crust on a baking sheet; pour the egg mixture into the crust, right to the top.
    6. 6
      Carefully transfer the baking sheet to the oven; bake 30-40 minutes, until the mixture is set but still moist; it should still jiggle just a little in the middle (cover pie crust edges with foil if getting too brown).
    7. 7
      Cool on a rack; serve warm or at room temperature.
