Additional Tips

I decided on a pre-made pastry dough because it is time efficient and truly does taste delicious. In considering apples, I settled on the Gala for its sweetness and popularity in supermarkets. As a side note, I estimate this quiche to cost about $2.37 a serving, making it a very economical supper when paired with a salad.
