Bacon and Cheddar Quiche
By Diana Rattray, About.com
- 1 1/3 cups all-purpose flour
- 1/8 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 cup cold butter, cut in small pieces
- 2 to 3 tablespoons ice-cold water
- 8 strips lean bacon, cooked and crumbled
- 4 large eggs
- 1 1/2 cups half-and-half or whole milk
- 1/4 teaspoon dried leaf thyme
- 1/8 teaspoon pepper
- 1 cup shredded sharp Cheddar cheese
Prepare crust for quiche. In a mixing bowl, mix together flour and salt. Cut in cold butter with a pastry blender until coarse crumbs form; add water, a little at a time, until dough holds together and forms a ball. Shape into a disk, wrap in plastic wrap, and refrigerate for about 30 minutes.
On a lightly floured surface with a floured rolling pin, roll out dough into a circle about 11 inches in diameter. Fit dough into a 9-inch pie plate or quiche pan. Trim edges, leaving a little overhang, about 1/4-inch all around the edge. Prick dough with a fork. Line with foil and fill with dried beans or pie weights. Bake quiche crust for 10 minutes at 375°.
In a small bowl, whisk together the eggs, milk, thyme, and pepper. Pour into the baked crust. Crumble bacon over the top with the shredded Cheddar cheese. Bake at 375° for about 30 minutes, or until quiche filling is set and top is lightly browned. Serve the quiche with fresh tomato wedges or a tossed salad.
Nancy’s YUMMY Cinnamon Rolls
1 T. dry yeast
1 c. warm milk
1/3 c white sugar
½ c melted butter
1 tsp salt

¼ c butter, softened
1c brown sugar
3 T. cinnamon
Spread butter on dough evenly. Sprinkle sugar and cinnamon over dough evenly. Roll dough up. Slice roll into 1 inch slices. Place on a greased pan. Let rise again until doubled. Bake 10 minutes at 400 degrees.
½ c butter, softened

Just like the famous ones in the malls.
