Better late than never right? Well, I certainly hope so, because after accidentally buying the wrong chocolate, things aren’t looking too good for this week’s mousse recipe either. In any case, last week’s French Fridays with Dorie recipe was Mushroom & Shallot Quiche. Yum!
I love quiche. I hate making tart crust. Do you see the problem? But Dorie keeps throwing all these tempting recipes at me which are forcing me to learn. And little by very little, it does seem to be getting easier.
On the subject of tart/pie crust, what do you do with your extra scraps of dough? I follow my mother’s practice of rolling it out, smearing it with butter, sugar or maple syrup, chopped nuts if I happen to have them on hand, and then rolling it into a log and baking it. I suspect that my mother did this to distract me so that I would leave the pie alone until it cooled. I can attest that it is a tasty little distraction, also good with a cup of tea.
But quiche is what we are talking about today. Dorie has several recipes for quiche in her book and I have loved them all. This one was no exception and I will definitely make it again. Maybe even soon, I do now have an extra portion tart dough in my freezer. Or do I make the gorgonzola-apple quiche again? Decisions decisions…
