How to make it

  • Prepare pie dough. You can use this or a favorite rich pie dough.
  • Some torta doughs contain a bit of wine in the dough and butter
  • instead of Crisco. Combine dry ingredients.
  • Cut in Crisco to form coarse crumbs. Beat eggs and stir in.
  • Dough should be soft but pliable.
  • Cover and chill while preparing filling.
  • Saute shredded cabbage and onion and sliced mushrooms in a skillet with a bit of olive oil and cook and stir until cabbage is wilted and very tender, about 20 minutes.
  • Season to taste with basil, marjoram, tarragon and salt and pepper or as desired.
  • Divide dough and roll out 1/2 on lightly floured surface to fit a 10 inch deep pie dish (could be spring form pan also).
  • Spread bottom crust with the softened cream cheese.
  • Layer on the sliced eggs . Add cooked and cooled cabbage filling.
  • Cover with chopped dill or basil. Add top crust and crimp and seal edges.
  • Slit top crust in several places to let steam escape.
  • Brush with an egg glaze.
  • Bake at 350 degrees for about 30 minutes.
