    I've made this 2x now, and the crust just never thoroughly cooks, next time I will use less flour, half a cup and it is hard after being in the fridge, I usually let it thaw for half an hour or so before rolling it out. But it's a good, easy and very quick recipe (I'll keep using it until I perfect it)!

    For some reason it didn't quite work! After being in the fridge for 3 hours the pastry was VERY hard and I had to get my husband to roll it out as he has more muscles! After freezing it for 45 minutes I put it in the oven and the sides of the pastry were quite soggy & sunk down (so it ended up just being pastry on the bottom). Once cooked with the quiche mixture the pastry was still quite soggy...but otherwise nice!!! Don't know what I did wrong as I followed the recipe best I could!

    This was an easy crust to make, and turned out great! I made 2 crusts the day before the brunch, and then put the filling in. They were delicious. Thanks, SueL.
