Ingredients

Double Crust Pie Dough

Egg Custard

  • 1 1/2 cups Swiss cheese, shredded
  • 1/4 cup red pepper, small dice
  • 1 1/2 tbsp chives, finely chopped
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/4 tsp salt

Instructions

Making the pie dough

  • In a large bowl mix the flour and salt.
  • Add the cold cubed butter and shortening to the flour mixture.  With a pastry cutter or two knives, cut the butter into the flour until the butter is pea size.
  • Start adding the water one tablespoon at a time and mix with a fork until the dough forms a ball.
  • Turn the dough onto a floured surface. Cut into two disks and roll each pie crust into a large circle, then using a 2 1/2" cutter, cut 24 circles to fit into the mini muffin pans.
  • Press each circle into the well of the muffin pan. I use a dough tamper that makes this easy.

Making the quiches

  • Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. You need mini muffin pans, enough for 24 quiches.
  • Add a tablespoon of the Swiss cheese to each cup. Top with the red pepper and chives.
  • In a small bowl beat the two eggs then add the milk and salt. Pour this mixture into each cup filling nearly to the top.
  • Bake at 375 degrees for 25-30 minutes, until the quiches are golden brown.
  • Cool slightly then remove from the muffin tin. Serve warm
