I love this recipe, the cheese adds to the usually bland flavor of the the quiche crust to make it rich and tasty.

Ingredients

  • ¾ cup all-purpose flour

  • 6 tablespoons cold butter, cut into small pieces

  • ¼ cup shredded Cheddar cheese

  • 5 teaspoons cold water

Directions

  1. Place flour in a large bowl. Sprinkle in the chopped butter; rub butter into the flour until it resembles bread crumbs. Stir in the grated cheese. Sprinkle water over the flour mixture, a teaspoon at a time, stirring lightly with a fork. Add just enough water to allow the dough form a ball and cleanly leave the sides of the bowl. Wrap the dough in plastic wrap, and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes.

  2. Preheat an oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Roll out dough, and place in a 9 inch pie/quiche pan. Use a fork to prick holes over the bottom of the pastry.

  3. Bake crust in preheated oven for 10 minutes before filling with quiche custard of your choice.
