Tomato Pie with Basil and Gruyere Cheese
Prep Time: 1 hour

Cook Time: 45 minutes

Total Time: 1 hour, 45 minutes
Yield: 6 to 8 servings
Ingredients

(Inspired from Southern Living recipe)
For the crust:
2 1/4 cups unbleached all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon salt
2 sticks unsalted butter, cubed and very cold
3/4 cups sour cream
4 to 5 tablespoons ice water
For the filling:
2 1/2 pounds assorted tomatoes
2 teaspoon salt (separated)
1 cup chopped Vidalia onion
1 3/4 cups grated Gruyere cheese
1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
3/4 cup Hellmann's mayonnaise
1/2 cup basil chiffonade
1 tablespoon chopped fresh thyme
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1 egg, beaten


For the crust:
1. Mix flour and salt together. In the bowl of a food processor, pulse flour and butter until mixture resembles coarse meal. Larger pieces of butter are fine.
2. Transfer mixture to a bowl and add sour cream. Mix until combined. Add 1 tablespoon of water at a time and mix until dough comes together into a ball. Knead dough four or five times, wrap dough in plastic wrap, and refrigerate for 30 minutes.
3. Transfer dough to a floured surface and roll to a 13-inch round. Gently place dough in a 9-inch fluted tart pan with 2-inch sides and a removable bottom. Press dough into pan; trim off excess dough along edges. Refrigerate for 30 minutes.
For the filling:
1. Cut two pounds of tomatoes into 1/4 inch slices and remove seeds. Lay slices on paper towel and sprinkle with one teaspoon of salt. Let sit for 30 minutes.
2. Combine Gruyere and Parmesan cheeses, mayonnaise, basil, thyme, one teaspoon salt, pepper, and egg.
To assemble pie:
1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
2. With additional paper towel, pat tomato slices to remove excess moisture.
3. Add onion to bottom of pie crust. Top onion with 1/3 of the cheese mixture. Layer half of tomatoes over cheese mixture in overlapping pattern. Top tomatoes with 1/3 of cheese mixture. Repeat with another layer of tomatoes and cheese mixture.
4. Cut remaining tomatoes into 1/4 inch slices and arrange on top of pie in an overlapping pattern.
5. Place pie on baking sheet and place in oven. Bake for 40 to 45 minutes.
6. Cool completely before cutting. Serve at room temperature.
