Brie (or Cheese) Tart

tart de bry (14c English)
Take a crust ynche deepe in a trap. Take yolkes of ayren rawe & cheese ruayn & medle it & pe yolkes togyder.

10-12 ounces of semi-soft cheese, such as brie, that's not too soft - you want to be able to cut it into tiny pieces
saffron threads (soaked in 1tsp warm water for 5 minutes)
1 1/2 tsp powdered ginger
3 egg yolks
1/2 - 1  tsp sugar
pinch of salt

Mix egg yolks and saffron (with the water) together. Add the cheese and spices, whisk until smooth and pour into the crust.  Bake at 375 25-30 minutes.  It might puff up a bit, but it does flatton out as it cools.
