We make a lot of Quiche at our house. There are so many favorite recipes to choose from.
Since I'm Vegetarian I don't make the Classic Quiche Lorraine , but I love Asparagus Quiche, Mushroom, Tomato and Onion Quiche.
Here's the only crust that I make for all of the Quiche recipes.
1 3/4 C All Purpose Flour
1 Stick of Butter, cold and cubed
1 tsp of Creme Fraiche (French) or Sour Cream (American, if you don't have Creme Fraiche.
1 /2 tsp Salt
This make 2 crusts. You can freeze one if you're only making one Quiche. We seem to make two at a time.
In a large mixing bowl:
Add Salt and whisk well.
Cut in the Butter using your fingertips.
You should end up with a coarse, sandy texture.
Make a well in the center.
Add the Egg and incorporate with a fork and then finish blending with a wooden spoon.
Add Sour Cream and continue mixing with a spoon, just to incorporate the Cream.
Add a bit of water if the dough appears to be too dry.
Knead it with your hands, gently.
Divide into two balls, wrap in plastic wrap and refrigerate the dough for 1 hour.
Let it it rest and get to room temperature before rolling to make the crust.
Continue the directions for the Quiche recipe that you choose.
Peace in the Kitchen!
