DIRECTIONS

1.

For the Simple Short-Crust

1.

Recipe Credit: https://cooking.nytimes.com/recipes/12884 basic short crust pastry

2.

Add the flour and salt to the base of a food processor. Pulse until the salt is well incorporated into the flour.

145 g all purpose flour

½ tsp kosher salt

3.

Add the butter and process until the mixture resembles a coarse-grained sand. While the processor is running, begin adding the water until a ball of dough forms.

1 stick unsalted butter, cold + cubed

3 ½ tbsp water, cold

4.

Remove the dough from the food processor and wrap it in plastic wrap. Press the dough into a disk and refrigerate for a minimum of 1 hour.

5.

Remove the dough from the refrigerator and roll it out to about 1/4 inch thickness and about 2 inches wider than the circumference of your tart pan.

6.

Carefully place the dough into a tart pan. Using a piece of extra dough as your tool, press the dough into the sides of the pan.

7.

Once the dough is flush with the sides of the pan, lightly fold the excess dough over the sides of the pan so that it hangs over the edge. This will prevent the dough from shrinking down the sides of the pan.

8.

Refrigerate the tart shell for 30 minutes or up to 1 hour.

9.

Line the tart shell with pre-crumpled parchment paper and fill the pan to the rim with sugar or baking beans.

10.

Par-bake the tart at 375°F for 25 minutes. Remove the sugar and parchment paper, continue to bake for another 5-10 minutes or until the pastry looks dry and has become a pale golden color.

11.

Trim off the excess crust using a sharp paring knife.

12.

Allow the tart shell to cool completely before filling with custard.

13.

For the Deep-Dish Quiche Crust

2.

Combine the flour and salt in the bowl of a strand mixer. Mix the dry ingredients until well combined using the paddle attachment.

300 g all purpose flour

1 tsp kosher salt

3.

Add the butter and mix until the butter pieces are the size of blueberries.

2 sticks unsalted butter, cold + cubed

4.

With the mixer running on low speed, slowly add enough water to form a dough.

90 g water, cold

5.

Wrap the dough in plastic wrap and shape it into a disk.

6.

Refrigerate for a minimum of 1 hour or up to overnight.

7.

Remove the chilled dough from the refrigerator and roll it out to about 1/4 inch thickness.

8.

Carefully place the dough into an 8 inch high-sided springform pan. Then, gently lift and drop the dough into the sides of the pan. If the dough gets too soft, refrigerate for 10 minutes and then resume lining the pan. Make sure the excess dough hangs off the edges of the pan, this will prevent the dough from shrinking during the par-baking process.

9.

Once the pie dough is flush with the side of the pan, refrigerate for 45 minute to 1 hour.

10.

Using two pieces of pre-crumpled parchment paper, line the springform pan. Fill the pan to the rim with sugar or baking beans.

11.

Par-bake the pie shell at 375°F for 25 minutes. Remove the sugar and parchment paper, continue to bake for another 10-15 minutes or until the pastry looks dry and has become a pale golden color.

12.

Trim off the excess crust using a sharp paring knife.

13.

Allow the quiche shell to cool completely before filling with custard.

14.

2 eggs

½ cup milk

½ cup cream

1 ½ tsp kosher salt

1 tsp white pepper

Top the custard with the remaining cheese and transfer the quiche to a large rimmed baking sheet.

1 ½ oz gruyere cheese, shredded

5.

Bake at 375°F for 10 minutes, lower to 325°F and cook for 30 minutes longer. The edges of the quiche should be completely set, but the center should be still a bit ‘jiggly.’

6.

Let the quiche cool at room temperature on a cooling rack for a minimum 30 minutes before removing from the tart pan and serving. Alternatively, allow the quiche to cool completely, about 3-4 hours, and then refrigerate overnight to serve the following morning.

1.

Combine the milk and creme fraiche in a large bowl, whisk well to incorporate.

Whisk the custard on medium speed for about 1-2 minutes, or until the mixture is light and frothy.

6.

Add a sprinkling of each cheese to the bottom of the quiche shell, then top it with an equal amount of the leeks, spinach, mushrooms, and asparagus. Add enough custard filling to cover the vegetables. Repeat this layering process with the remaining ingredients until the shell is just about full, stop about 3-4 millimeters from the edge.
