Frozen pie crusts no more!

There are a few things in life that I just can’t do. Making a pie crust is one of them.
Until yesterday, that is!
I love baked all goods, pies and quiches included. In the past, I had to resort to buying the frozen prepared crusts. Or, I could resort to making crustless quiches, nowhere near as good! So last night, I decided I was going to make a quiche with a homemade crust if it killed me. It didn’t help that when I started, I realized I was out of butter. So I used the Advanced Search option, and put butter as an ingredient I didn’t want. I ended up making the Pie Crust IV, the highest-rated recipe in my search results (I need all the help I can get!).
I made the crust, and before rolling it out I popped it in the fridge in the bowl while I worked on the quiche filling. I chose Light and Fluffy Spinach Quiche. When everything was ready, I brought the dough out again. I rolled it out on a floured countertop, and I was floored when it actually worked!
The stars must’ve been aligned, because not only did it look great, it tasted good too! I was so happy I not only emailed my coworker FrancesC to tell her, but I bragged about it on Facebook! Still today I’m so happy I’m blogging about it! More than excited, I almost feel a sense of relief! I can do it, and that’s what I love about Allrecipes! I’d call myself an everyday, average sort of cook, but thanks to all the great cooks out there who have submitted and reviewed these recipes—I look like a pro!
I think a dessert pie will be on the to-do list for tomorrow!
Light and Fluffy Spinach Quiche--The final product, and it tasted great too!
Pie Crust IV--Look at that crust! I made it!
