  • Preheat oven to 160* C (320* F) Fan.

For the filling

  • Place a pan over medium to high heat and let it get very hot.

  • Add 1/3 of the mushrooms to the pan along with 1 tablespoon of olive oil, 1 teaspoon thyme, salt and pepper.
  • Sauté without stirring too often so they can dry out.
  • When ready, remove from pan and transfer to a strainer that has been placed in a bowl, to drain.

  • Bake the bottom crust for 20 minutes.
  • When ready, remove from oven, remove weights and plastic wrap. Put the mixture with the mushrooms in the tart.
  • Prepare the filling by combining the heavy cream, eggs, cognac, salt, pepper and thyme until completely combined.  
  • Pour in to tart and bake for 40 minutes, until lightly golden.
