Mushroom Pie

Recipe by MsBindy
READY IN: 1hr 10mins




  • Saute the onions in butter in a large skillet.
  • When the onions are soft and translucent, add the mushrooms and thyme and suate for a few more minutes, until the mushrooms release their juices.
  • Add the seasonings.
  • Cut the cream cheese into small pieces and stir it into the mushrooms until it melts.
  • Remove from the heat and set aside until crust is ready.
  • Preheat oven to 400°F.
  • For the crust, combine the flour, baking powder and salt in a large mixing bowl.
  • Cut in the butter just enough to achieve a crumbly mix.
  • Stir in the sour cream to form a soft dough.
  • Generously dust the dough with flour and form into a ball.
  • On a heavily floured surface, roll out 2/3 of the dough to fit a 10 inch pie plate.
  • Trim the edges.
  • Fill with the mushroom mixture.
  • Roll out the remaining dough about 1/4 inch thick (Thicker than normal pie crust) and cut into strips 1 inch wide.
  • Weave the strips into a lattice over the filling.
  • Fold the ends of the lattice strips under the bottom crust, pinch the edges together, and flute.
  • For the glaze, beat the egg and milk.
  • With a pastry brush, thoroughly coat the pie crust. (You will have more glaze than you will need).
  • Bake the pie for 25-35 minutes, until the crust is puffy and golden.
