Let's enjoy some quiche by my little waterfall today, shall we? My little lady vase is sprouting some mini roses and some other flowers from my garden.
This is one of my favorite springtime teacups that I received from a teacup exchange, several years ago.
I shared this no-roll pie crust when I first started my blog, before anyone even visited me, and it is so quick and easy. Everything is measured and prepared right in the pie pan. I know, I know, there are those who only believe in a pie crust made with butter, shortening, or a combo of both, but please try this. It is made with oil, but it is really flaky, and pretty amazing!
No-Roll Pie Crust
Yield: 1 single crust pie shell
I cut this recipe out years ago from a Penzey spice catalog, and it comes in handy. I do hope you try it, and see for yourself how flaky it is.
- 1 1/2 cups flour
- 1 t. sugar
- 1/2 t. salt
- 1/2 cup oil (I use canola)
- 3 T. milk
How to cook No-Roll Pie Crust
- Put all ingredients in a 9 inch pie pan. Mix with a fork until well blended & pat into the pan. Push the pastry up the sides & form a nice edge with your thumb & finger. Prick the crust with a fork to prevent bubbling of the pastry during baking.
- Bake at 425 degrees for 10-12 minutes or until light golden brown. I used my convection oven & turned it down to 400 degrees.
For a quiche, I pre-bake the crust for about 7-8 minutes before filling and then do the baking. For an pie that does not require baking, bake the crust, let cool and then fill. For a single crust pie that requires baking, make the crust, fill, and then bake as directed.

I added a new birdhouse above my waterfall. The spider plant and pot, was gifted to me from a friend that moved to the Texas Hill Country.
Here's my cleaned up fairy garden.
When Cissy comes over during the week to bake after school, she likes to enjoy a cup of chai tea with a mound of whipped cream on top! We like having our tea parties outside on the patio, while we chat and enjoy each other's company.
After she finishes the whipped cream, Cissy likes to place her stroopwafel on top of her teacup, for the caramel to melt that's in the middle of the cookie. Cissy made cheerleader for next year, and had just received her uniform.
My four-year-old granddaughter, Harper, was so happy to spend the night. She asked her Daddy if she could stay "for five days"! Breakfast and tea in bed is something that she looks forward to.
Harper set up her own tea party before her Daddy and baby sister came to pick her up. She cried so hard before she left! We will have to arrange a "five day" stay soon!
Thank you for your visit! xo
I am sharing this with these lovely parties:
