Learn how to make the French version of pie dough, pate brisee, from scratch and never look at a pie recipe with fear again! The quiche will be the classic Quiche Lorraine, so delicious with cheese and bacon (can be replaced with leeks).

Special Equipment Needed:
For the Quiche: You can use a big quiche pan (mine is 11″/28cm). If you don’t have a quiche pan, you can use a pie pan or a cake pan. For the cake pan, you’ll need parchment to line it. In terms of sizes, an 8″, 9″ cake pan, or a large 10″ (20-25 cm) will work. To weigh down the pie crust while we prebake it, you can use pie weights, dried beans or rice, or even a smaller ovenproof pan that will fit inside. Any leftover batter can be baked directly in a greased muffin tin for crustless (super delicious) quiche.
For the cookies: a zester is good to have!
