Easy, Cheesy Pie Crust
Store-bought pie dough is so bland and thin, so it can bake up soggy in a quiche. We were able to seal the dough, and make it taste better, by sprinkling it with Parmesan cheese mixed with a little flour.
Why This Recipe Works
We developed this Easy, Cheesy Pie Crust recipe for use with vegetable quiches. It is incredibly flaky, and takes no time at all. Parmesan cheese serves two purposes: sprinkled on our store-bought crust, it melts when baked to create a waterproof barrier that keeps the custard filling from making the crust soggy. And the cheese gives extra flavor to the bland crust.
