Quiche Crust

Budget.Gourmet's picture
  Flour 2 Cup (32 tbs)
  Baking powder 2 Teaspoon
  Salt To Taste
  Vegetable oil 1⁄2 Cup (8 tbs)
  Milk 1⁄4 Cup (4 tbs)

Mix the flour and the baking powder together.
Add salt if you wish.
Mix the oil and milk together, and then pour into the flour.
Stir only until mixed.
The mixture will be rather coarse and granular, but it will roll out well.
Do not overmix.
Mold into two balls, and wrap with plastic.
Allow to sit for 15 minutes.
Each ball will make one 9 inch piecrust.
If you are using a larger french quiche pan, then use a bit more of the dough.
Roll out between two sheets of wax paper.
Place the pastry in the quiche pan or pie plate, and prick the bottom with a kitchen fork.
Line the inside with wax paper or aluminum foil.
Put two cups of dry beans into the piecrust, and bake at 400° for 12 minutes.
