The Perfect Pastry

One of the culinary highlights of yesterday's memorial dinner was Lee's quiche.  The foundation was the fabulous pastry.  Here is Lee's recipe!

Knead together:
1 1/4 cup of flour
1/4 cup of butter
Until it forms crumbs.  Add:
2 1/2 tbsps of cider vinegar
3 tbsps of water
And knead lightly.  Roll out and form in the pan. If the filling will create a lot of liquid, like peaches or apples you need to bake the crust to prevent it from getting soggy.  Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.  Prick holes into the crust and line with:
Fill to the brim with:
Dry rice or beans
and bake for 20 minutes.  The filler keeps the crust from expanding.  Remove the foil and filler and voila!

Quiche is easy, and so Lee made two, one for dinner yesterday, and one for breakfast this morning. Our friend Abby also prepares and freezes prepared crusts so you can whip up a pie whenever you need one.
