Ingredients

  • Savory Pastry Dough

  • 1/4

    cup (1oz) shredded provolone, Muenster or similar semi soft medium-aged cheese

  • 2

    tsp mixed chopped fresh such as tarragon,c hives, chervil, thyme, and/or Italian parsley, in any combination.

  • 8

    large eggs

  • 2

    tbs unsalted butter, cut into bits

  • 4

    tbs heavy cream

Directions

Prepare the pastry dough as directed and refrigerate for 1 hour. Transfer the dough to a floured work surface and dust with flour as well. Roll out 1/8 inch thick and cut into 4 rounds each about 6 inches in diameter. Carefully transfer them to the prepared pans, pressing gently against the bottom and sides. trim off the overhang and, using your thumb and forefinger, crimp the edges attractively. Score the bottoms and sides several times with the tines of a fork. Line with waxed paper and fill with pie weights or beans. Bake until very light brown, 8-10 minutes. Transfer to a wire rack to cool, then remove the weights or beans and the waxed paper. Reduce the oven temperature to 350 degrees. Sprinkle about 1 tsp of the cheese into the bottom of each cooled pastry shell. In a small dish, stir together the remaining cheese and the herbs. Break 2 eggs into each pastry shell, positioning them side by side, and dot the tops with the butter, dividing it equally. Sprinkle the cheese-herb mixture evenly over the tops, then spoon 1 tbs of cream atop each pair of eggs. Bake until eggs have set, about 8 minutes. Remove from the oven and let cool for 1 minute. Using a narrow spatula, carefully transfer to warmed individual plates and serve immediately.
