Scale

Ingredients

  • 9 ounces homemade or store bought pie dough, slightly chilled
  • All-purpose flour, for dusting
  • 3 ounces plain cream cheese, softened to room temperature
  • 1/3 cup heavy cream
  • 3 large eggs
  • 10 ounces fresh baby spinach, chopped
  • 1/2 cup grated sharp white cheddar cheese
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 2 green onions, white and light green parts only, thinly sliced
  • 1/2 teaspoon coarse salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 400°F.
  2. If you’re using homemade pie dough, roll it out onto a piece of floured parchment paper to about 11 inches in diameter.
  3. Transfer the dough (or pre-made crust) onto a 9-inch round tart or cake pan. Neatly crimp and push in the edges to fit the sides of the pan. Trim off any excess dough.
  4. In the bowl of a stand mixer (or with a hand mixer and a large mixing bowl), beat the cream cheese until smooth. On medium-low speed, beat in the cream and eggs until thoroughly combined. Mix in the spinach, cheeses, green onions, salt, and pepper.
  5. Pour the mixture into the prepared crust, and bake until the crust is golden brown and the filling is set, about 35-45 minutes. Remove from the oven and allow to cool in the pan for 10 minutes before slicing.
