Instructions

  1. Whisk together flour, sugar and salt.  Cut in butter using a pastry cutter just until the dough start to form large crumbs. Add ice water one tablespoon at a time until the dough pulls together working it through with a fork or your hands.  Shape into a ball and slightly flatten.  Roll up in plastic wrap and chill for at least one hour.
  2. Lightly flour work surface and rolling pin.  Roll out  dough from the center out rotating the disk about an 1/8 to a 1/4 of a turn each time.  Roll the dough out to 13 inches so you have a 2 inch over hang all around the pie dish.  Carefully roll the pie crust on to the rolling pin to transfer to the pie pan.  Trim the excess with a paring knife and fold the edges under.  Crimp the edges and refrigerate for at least 1 hour.
  3. Pierce the bottom and sides of the crust with a fork to prevent air pockets from forming. Cut a 13 inch circle out of parchment paper.  Gently press into the pie plate and fill the pie shell with rice or beans making sure to fill it most of the way up.  Have everything ready so your pie crust stays chilled.  Bake at 400 degrees for 10-12 minutes. Remove the pie from the oven and carefully lift out the parchment paper with the rice in it.  Bake for an additional 10 minutes.  If using this pie crust recipe for a cream pie or refrigerated pie add an additional ten to fifteen minutes on to the final baking time or until golden brown.
  4. In large saucepan over medium low heat melt the butter.  Add the onions and ham and cook for 2 to 3 minutes.  Stir in the garlic, parsley and marjoram; cook for 1 minute. Then remove the pan from the heat.
  5. Beat the eggs and whipped cream.  Stir in both cheeses, chopped broccoli, dry mustard, salt and fresh cracked pepper. Add the onions, ham and spices that you set aside.  Pour the egg mixture into the pre-baked pie crust and place in oven. Bake at 350 degrees for 40-45 minutes or until a knife inserted in the center comes out clean.  If the edges of the pie crust are browning to fast cover loosely with strips of aluminum foil.  Let the quiche rest for 10 minutes before serving.
