How to make it

  • Crust:
  • Place the flour and salt in a food processor bowl and pulse to combine. Add the chilled butter and shortening and pulse until the fat is cut into the flour and resembles wet cornmeal. Slowly add the ice water, pulsing just until the dough comes together. Form the dough into a rough ball and wrap in plastic wrap. Refrigerate for a minimum of 2 hours.
  • Roll out the dough on a floured work surface and transfer to a 9-inch pie pan. Cover lightly with plastic wrap and refrigerate for one hour.
  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Place a piece of parchment paper on top of the dough and fill with dry rice or beans, or pie weights. Bake 30 minutes. Remove the parchment paper and weights and cook 5 minutes more. Cool on a wire rack while preparing the filling.
  • Filling:
  • Place the egg yolks, cream, and Boursin cheese in a blender and mix until smooth. Pour the mixture into a bowl and stir in the salt, prosciutto, asparagus, red peppers, garlic, and basil. Pour into the pie shell and bake 35 to 45 minutes, until the custard is firm and a knife inserted near the center comes out clean. Remove from the oven and cool at least 15 minutes before serving.

    I can see why your quiches would be popular with the customers - that is not only gorgeous, but the flavors are fantastic. I have almost everything I need to complete this one, just need some fresh boursin and prosciutto, and a quick trip to Whole Foods to pick up the Jungle shortening (never heard of that one) and this one is going on next week's menu...I cannot wait to taste this. Thank you, luisa - your posts are always delicious!

    Looks wonderful and sounds delicious! I was wondering what cheese could I substitute for the Boursin since I won't be able to find that here?

    Looks wonderful and sounds delicious! I was wondering what would be another cheese to substitute if I can't find Boursin cheese?
