  • 3/4 cup cold unsalted butter cut into pieces
  • 1 large egg + 1 teaspoon water for brushing

  • 6 large eggs
  • 2 cloves garlic minced

Instructions

  • In a small bowl, whisk together the egg, vinegar and water.
  • Add the cold butter pieces into the food processor and pulse until small coarse crumbs remain.
  • Sprinkle the water/egg mixture over the flour and pulse again until the dough comes together.
  • Remove the dough with your hands and wrap it in plastic wrap. Refrigerate the dough for 30 minutes. After 30 minutes, roll the dough out and place it in a 9-inch tart pan or (deep dish) pie plate.

filling

  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
  • Whisk together the eggs, garlic, cream, cheese, salt and peppers. Fold in the broccoli florets.┬áPour the filling into the crust. Brush the edges of the crust with the egg wash.

Notes

I also love to serve this with a greens salad! If you want to do that, I suggest 2 cups of greens per person!
