Steps

1
Done

For the dough: Add the flour and cold butter cubes to a bowl. Mix using your hands until the mixture is finely crumbled and even.

2
Done

Add the cold water and continue mixing using a spatula, then knead until you have a dough.

3
Done

Wrap it in plastic and refrigerate for 60 minutes.

4
Done

For the filling: Heat the vegetable oil in a skillet over low heat, then add the diced garlic. Cook and stir until tender.

5

Add the bacon and fresh thyme and stir for 30 seconds or so. Add the leek, stir a little, then cover with a lid and cook for 10 minutes.

6

8
Done

Season with salt and pepper, mix, add the creme fraiche, then again mix until even. Set aside.

9
Done

Assemble the quiche: Dust the work surface with flour. Flatten the dough using your hands, then the rolling pin. Try to give it a circular form.

10
Done

Grease a flared pie pan with butter and line it with the flattened dough. Trim its protruding margins using a knife. Poke holes into the dough using a fork.

11

Add a parchment paper on top of the pan and fill it with beans so that when baking it, the dough would preserve its form. Bake for 10 minutes at 360⁰F/180⁰C.

Remove from the oven, discard the parchment paper with the beans, and bake again for 10 minutes at 360⁰F/180⁰C.

Well, I love to eat! I guess I always did. Tasty foods, traditional foods, fast-foods, healthy foods and, again, not so healthy ones. You name it.
