How To Make A Quiche Lorraine

  1. In bowl of an electric mixer with the paddle attachment, mix 1 cup of flour with salt at low speed. Keeping a low speed, add in the butter a little at a time. Mix until completely incorporated. Add the last cup of flour on a low speed until just blended. Add water until incorporated. Flatten pastry into a disc and chill at least 1 hour or overnight.
  2. Place dough into a greased baking dish and flatten out with fingers across the bottom and all of the way up the sides of the dish. Chill until ready to fill.
  3. Preheat oven to 325 degrees.
  4. Lightly beat the eggs, add heavy cream, onion, salt, pepper, paprika, and nutmeg. Mix until combined. Add cheese and stir to combine. Pour egg mixture into the dish with the pastry shell.
  5. Place dish onto rimmed baking sheet and bake for 45 minutes to 1 hour or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean.
