This is a perfect dish to make when you have beautiful tomatoes begging to be used. Store bought pie crust makes it an easy weeknight meal and the addition of some golden caramelized onions can turn it into a weekend hit. Although you may not want to share, it’s that good!
1 unbaked Pie Crust
1 (5oz) package of Boursin Garlic and Herbs Cheese
1 small yellow onion, sliced and caramelized
2 Large or 3 Medium Tomatoes
1 Tablespoon Honey
1 Tablespoon Olive Oil
Handful of torn or chiffonade basil
Salt and Pepper to taste
1 large egg with a drizzle of water, beaten
Preheat your oven 375 degrees.
On a parchment lined baking sheet, unroll the pie crust. Spread the Boursin cheese on the dough leaving about a 1 1/2 inch border. Sprinkle the onion over the cheese and then layer on your toms. Sprinkle with a healthy shower of salt and pepper to taste. Drizzle with olive oil and honey and then the basil.
Gently fold the edges of the dough up over the tomatoes, repeating every two inches around the free formed pie. Brush the crust with the beaten egg wash.
Pop into your heated oven and bake for *1 hour or until crust is golden.
* Don’t go too far, check at the 30 minute mark to make sure the crust isn’t burning,
Let cool for 5 minutes.
Devour with a nice glass of wine.
