Ingredients
  • 1 2/3 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2/3 cup ice cold butter
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 2 1/2 tbsp granulated white sugar
  • 1 medium size egg yolk
  • 1/8 cup cold milk
Instructions
  1. Whisk flour and salt in a mixing bowl.
  2. Cut butter into a few pieces and work it into the flour with a paddle attachment or with your fingers until it resembles fine crumbs.
  3. Now add sugar, egg yolk, and milk and stir until just combined.
  4. Let your Single Pie Crust rest in the fridge for about 1 hour.
  5. Then roll dough out and place it in an 11-inch round quiche form with removable bottom.
  6. Put the quiche form in the freezer for about 30 minutes.
  7. Fill your Single Pie Crust and let it bake at 175°C (350°F) for about 40 minutes. When your filling could be brown too much, cover your pie with parchment paper for the half of the baking time. You can also bake it blind. In this case, line your Single Pie Crust with parchment paper and press it lightly against the bottom and the edges of your Pie Crust. Then heavy it with baking balls evenly. Make sure that your baking balls will push against your edges to prevent the edges from sinking. Bake it blind for 40 minutes.
