1 tbsp coconut sugar
½ tsp salt
10 tbsp frozen butter, cubed, may sub goat butter
3 to 5 tbsp ice water

Then add additional water only as necessary. Do not over-knead. Form dough into a ball and cover with plastic wrap. Compress into a disk shape and refrigerate dough for half an hour. Prepare the filling.
Ingredients for the filling:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Toss the chopped mushrooms, fennel, leeks, parsley and smoked paprika with olive oil. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Roast at 350 for 10-12 minutes then set aside. While veggies are roasting, whisk milk and eggs together. Combine Parmesan and Gruyere cheeses. Add half the cheese mixture and a good grind of salt and pepper.

Butter and flour a glass pie dish. Roll out the dough on a sheet of parchment or a floured surface, then drape it into the buttered dish. Crimp edges.
