DIRECTIONS

  • Put oven rack in middle position and preheat oven to 375°F (or as per pie shell directions). Bake pie shell following package directions.
  • Cool completely in pan on a rack, about 15 minutes.
  • Make filling while shell bakes:
  • Heat butter and oil in a 12-inch heavy skillet over moderately high heat until foam subsides, then sauté mushrooms, shallot, thyme, 1/2 teaspoon salt, and 1/4 teaspoon pepper, stirring frequently, until mushrooms are tender and any liquid given off is evaporated, 8 to 10 minutes. Transfer to a bowl and cool to room temperature.
  • Whisk together crème fraîche, heavy cream, whole egg, yolk, and remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt and 1/8 teaspoon pepper in a medium bowl until combined.
  • Fill and bake tart:
  • Reduce oven temperature to 325°F
  • Scatter mushrooms evenly in tart shell and pour custard over them. Bake tart in pan on a baking sheet until custard is just set and slightly puffed, 35 to 45 minutes.
  • Cool tart in pan on rack at least 20 minutes, then remove side of pan. Serve tart warm or at room temperature.
