My roommate believes this to be the best quiche she has ever tasted – it’s very rich and flavorful and earthy. Here’s the recipe.

Crust from Pie Everyday:

Stir 1/2 teaspoon of salt into a cup and a half of flour. Cut a stick of butter into the flour. Once the flour looks like coarse sand or gravel, add cold water a tablespoon at a time until the dough just holds together. According to Pie Everyday, it will take about 4-5 tablespoons. According to my experience, it’s more like 8-10 tablespoons. Or 20. But if you add 20 tablespoons of water the crust will not brown, so try to restrain yourself when you add the water.
