Bible study was at my house today. We are studying Beth Moore's "David". It is so good! But before we dig into the Word, we eat!
2 c. flour
1 t. salt
2/3 c. lard (or 2/3 c. plus 1 T. vegetable shortening)
6 T cold water
Mix salt and flour. With pastry cutter, cut in the lard until crumbly. With fork, toss the ice cold water until all is well-blended.
Using hands, form dough into ball. Split ball in two (this makes 2 crusts; either a top and bottom or 2 different pies)
Put a small amount of flour on a pastry board (or on your counter) and spread it around so that the dough doesn't stick. You will need to lightly flour the rolling pin also. Roll one ball out rolling from the center out so dough is about 1/8 inch thick. I fold my dough in half and then half again to transfer to the pie plate. Crimp edges. Fill.
2 c. whipping cream
3/4 t. salt
1/4 t. sugar
1/2 pound bacon, cooked and crumbled
1 c. swiss cheese, shredded
Mix all together. Bake at 450 degrees 15 minutes. Then 30 minutes at 300 degrees.
1 lb. frozen spinach, thawed and well drained (or cook fresh spinach)
1/2 c. chopped green onion
1 clove garlic, chopped
2 T. butter
1 1/2 c. swiss cheese, shredded
3 eggs, lightly beaten
3/4 c. milk
1 t. salt
1 t. basil
1/2 t. celery salt
In butter, saute onion and garlic. Add rest of ingredients and put in pie shell.
2 medium tomatoes, thinkly sliced
Arrange tomatoes around the edge.
Bake 425 degrees for 15 minutes. Turn heat down to 350 and bake 10 more minutes.
1 T. grated Parmesan cheese
Sprinkle on top of quiche. Bake 10 more minutes.
I found I needed to add a few more minutes to the above recipe. And because I was doing both kinds, I adapted the temperature to fit both recipes. It works fine. And they are such delicious quiches!!
Our story today was about Mephibosheth and how David showed kindness to him. You can share kindness to others by making these wonderful recipes for someone!! How wonderful that God shows His kindness to us. We don't deserve it, but He does it anyway!
"How great is the love the Father has lavished on us, that we should be called the children of God!" 1 John 3:1
