DIRECTIONS

  • The day before, combine flour, butter and a little water to make the dough for the pie crust. Refrigerate overnight (To save time, I sometimes omit this step and use a store-bought crust).
  • Divide the dough into 2 parts, bearing in mind that the bottom crust requires more dough than the top. Roll out the dough (again, I omit this step when using a store-bought crust). Butter a pie plate or line with parchment paper, then place bottom crust in pie plate.
  • Remove the crusts from the cheeses, then slice the cheeses. Cover the bottom of the pie crust with the cheese slices, then sprinkle with nutmeg.
  • Beat 1 egg together with the liquid cream and pour over the brie slices.
  • Cover with the top pie crust, carefully sealing the edges and cutting a few small slits in the top crust.
  • Beat remaining egg together with a dash of salt and brush over top crust to make it golden brown during baking.
  • Bake at 350°F (180°C) for 25 minutes. Serve warm with a green salad.
