These are completely delicious little morsels! Great for OAMC too! I used Foolproof Flaky Butter Pastry for the pastry and did not prebake because I find that tends to make the pastry too hard. I think my oven must run hot at the higher temperatures because these were starting to burn after 10 minutes so I dropped the temperature to 350F at that point. Since I was baking these for OAMC, I baked them at 350F for another 5 minutes. They were very puffed up at this point, but dropped to normal as they cooled. When they were cool, I wrapped them in saran wrap and froze. Reheating Instructions: Place frozen mini quiches on a cookie sheet and bake in a preheated oven at 350F for 12-13 minutes (I used the top shelf of the oven if it makes any different). These reheated extremely well, I would definitely make these in bulk to have as a quick appetizer!
