….is not one of my many talents, unfortunately. I tried to make a quiche yesterday for which whimsicaljottings gave me a recipe. The quiche was beautiful – the taste, the aroma it infused my kitchen with *happy sigh*. The only challenge was the pastry. I’ve never made shortcrust pastry before – now I know why 😉
It was easy to mix everything together – but the shortening was rock solid so I wasn’t sure how it was going to melt. I also had a lot of difficulty rolling out the dough (after keeping it in the fridge for 45 minutes) because it kept breaking.
I’m going to try this again another day – maybe make the pastry with a food processor instead of manually. Can’t admit defeat so easily 🙂
For the record, the quiche was awesome. Here’s a photo (taken quickly with my phone) to prove it:
*My dream is to make a Pecan Pie but I’m afraid I’ll end up eating the whole pie myself without sharing any and go into sugar coma. But it would be worth it right? I can’t decide on that just yet.
