Pastry Pie Crust Recipe
This Pastry Pie Crust Recipe is perfect for pies and quiches.

This flaky pastry pie crust, known as pate sucree, is the perfect vessel for your favorite pies. Use this with my chocolate haupia pie recipe for a decadent dessert any time of the year. It also makes a perfect shell for a Quiche Lorraine.

If making a cold pie, prebake the crust in a convection oven at 450 F for about 10 minutes, or until it’s golden brown. In a regular oven, bake it at 350 F for 15-20 minutes.
