  1. Put the flour and butter into a large bowl and stir with a fork or pastry blender until the mixture resembles breadcrumbs.
  2. Stir in the six spoons of water.  If the pastry does not come together easily add the remaining water a little at a time.
  3. Using your hands, gather the mix together to form a smooth ball of pastry dough.
  4. Cover the pastry with parchment or cling film and rest it for 30 minutes.
  5. Rub a little butter around the base and edges of a 23cm/9” quiche dish.
  6. On a floured surface, roll out the pastry into a circle a little larger than the dish.
  7. Carefully transfer the pastry to the dish pressing it into position to fit around the edges.

Cheese and Onion Filling

  1. Pre-heat the oven.
  2. Slice the onion and put it into a frying pan with the oil.
  3. Cook over a medium heat until the onion is soft and just starting to brown which will take 15-25 minutes.
  4. Break the eggs into a mixing bowl, add the cream and beat together well.
  5. Grate the cheese into the bowl, season with salt and pepper and stir to combine.
  6. When the onion is ready, spread it out over the base of the prepared pastry.
  7. Tip the prepared egg mixture over the onion and bake immediately for 40-45 minutes.

Cooking time

15-25 minutes + 40-45 minutes
Recipe quantities have just worked fine for me and in fact used around 6.5 tablespoons of cold water. I would suggest add half water, mix, then gradually add rest.

7 tbs of water??? I struggled with a previous attempt using just one tbs of water so I thought I'd give this a go even though it sounded too much. It's too much. I ended up with a cooked porridge consistency. So I doubled the quantity of flour and butter and now my two portions are in the fridge. Not holding out much.hope for great pastry. Please amend.
