Blueberry Basil Goat Cheese Pie

It sounds weird.  Stop thinking about it and just try it.  You will be happy.

Yield: 12 Servings

Ingredients

  • 1 pie crust
  • Filling
    • 3/4 cup soft goat cheese
    • 3/4 cup heavy whipping cream
    • 2 eggs
    • 3/4 cup brown sugar
    • 1/4 cup + 2 tbsp flour
    • 1/4 tsp salt
    • 1 1/2 tsp dried basil
    • 7 1/2 cups fresh blueberries
  • Topping
    • 1 1/2 cup sliced almonds
    • 3/4 cup sugar
    • 1/2 cup margarine, melted

Directions

  1. Roll the crust out and transfer to a 10", deep pie plate.  Poke with a fork.
  2. Bake the pie crust at 350°F for 15 minutes.
  3. For the filling, whip together the goat cheese, cream, eggs, sugar, flour, salt, and basil.  Fold in the blueberries.
  4. Pour the filling into the pie crust.
  5. For the topping, toss together all three ingredients.  Sprinkle over the pie.
  6. Cover the edges of the crust with aluminum foil.  Bake at 350°F for 65-80 minutes, removing the foil halfway through, until the crust is golden brown.  Cool on a wire rack.
