Pour egg/onion mixture over cheese/sausage mixture in pie pan. Bake quiche for 20 to 25 minutes or until center of pie is just set.

  20. Ingredients:

  21. 2 cups all-purpose flour
  22. 10 tablespoons cold unsalted butter, cut into 10 pieces
  23. 3/4 teaspoon salt
  24. 2 tablespoons milk
  25. 2-4 tablespoons ice water

  26. Directions:

  27. In work bowl of food processor, place flour, butter and salt. Pulse until flour and butter are incorporated and the dough resembles coarse meal. Add milk and 2 tablespoons of ice water. Pulse. Add more ice water as needed until a dough forms. Remove pie dough from processor and divide and form two rounds. Wrap in plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 1 hour.

  28. When ready to bake, preheat oven to 400°F. Remove one round of dough from refrigerator and roll out. Lay into a greased pie dish and prick with the tines of a fork to prevent crust puffing up while baking. Bake for about 15 minutes, or until crust is a light golden brown. Let cool before adding quiche ingredients.
