1/3 cup cold butter (do not
use margarine), cut into
2-3 tablespoons cold water
1 cup grated Gruyère cheese
2 tablespoons butter
1/2 cup chopped onions

1 cup cream
3 tablespoons chopped

the pie weights. Sprinkle bottom of crust with grated cheese.

and cook until soft. Add mushrooms and cook, stirring occasionally, until soft
and lightly browned. Remove from heat.

mushroom mixture. Pour into the piecrust. Sprinkle with basil.
8. Bake for 30-35 minutes, or until a knife inserted in the center comes out
