This was easy, and I thought the presentation was beautiful. But it is very sweet and doesn't really taste like a "quiche" at all. However, I've been eating the leftovers and it's really growing on me, so I had to come back and add a star. I think my initial turn-off was that I was looking for something that actually tasted like a quiche and this was more like a vegetable cheesecake. I'm curious to try it again, and cut back on the cream cheese and sugar, and add more egg.
I was lucky enough to make this around Thanksgiving & get really nice, fresh cranberries. I recommend using Sugar in the Raw, or something like it... that's what I used, & the cranberries turned out to be a surprising mixture of tangy & sweet. They tasted almost like raspberries. The rest of the filling was stunning & cheesecake-like. This is the first time I feel like I'm bringing something really great to my Thanksgiving potluck!
This was great! I made this for a potluck and got several compliments on it. I used a frozen Mrs. Smith's pie crust which worked quite well. I also had to used canned berries -- I think we can only get fresh ones around here around Thanksgiving. I used half a can like Chef Desiree suggested, but I think a little more might have been good too. My only complaint was that the top didn't come out looking very appetizing.
This was wonderful! It was like thanksgiving dinner in an eggpie! The flavors worked wonderfully together and the colors were beautiful. I did make a few changes though: I used storebought Tenderflake deep dish pie pastry. Also, instead of using fresh cranberries (there were non at the grocers) I used about half a can of Oceanspray whole berry cranberry sauce. Next time I will try and use whole cranberries because I think they would be bigger and jucier but in a pinch the canned stuff worked fine also. I will definatly make this again! Thanks!
