Surprise! Pie

I love pie.  I am not sure what it is, but I just love almost anything in a crust.  When it came time to decide what this month's Sourdough Surprise would be, it turned out that pretty much all of us had pie on the brain, and we were all excited to play with this one.  The recipe was pretty basic, subbing in sourdough starter for the liquid.
The dry ingredients:
 All wrapped up and ready to rest:
 Ready to roll:
 The three year old wanted to poke the holes in the crust.  She did a good job, don't you think?
 Pre-baked pie shell:
 I was a little concerned about the cracks, I had decided to make a dinner pie - quiche - and I didn't want egg custard dripping everywhere!    As it turns out, I had no reasons to worry:
 Yum.  Broccoli, cheese, onions and eggs in a sourdough crust.  So.  Good.
The crust was great.  Crispy but tender, great flavor but not overpowering...  I was so pleased!
There was only one thing I was sad about - that I only made the one pie this month!!  No worries.  Sourdough pie crusts will be used again.  For lots of different types of pies. I can't wait!!
I hope you made your own pie this month, and I hope you'll link it up for all of us to see!!


  1. I agree with you Ruth... I also love anything in a crust :) I love your brocoli quiche, one of my favorites! Can't wait to join in the fun! Just waiting to settle back in Brazil before the end of the year so that I don't have to kill my sourdough everytime I travel :/

  2. Oh, I so wanted to make a quiche with this, and now I want to even more!! That looks DELICIOUS! :)

  3. Holy Moly!!! This is a delicious looking quiche!! Great job! Seriously, so delicious!

  4. I love your savory take on the sourdough crust pie. I've been a broccoli and cheese fan since my Mother, who couldn't cook, used to nuke us a frozen boxed version lol I've moved on from that and am bookmarking this beautiful pie!

  5. I made a sweet pie, but quiche is a great idea. And yours looks so good!

  6. I was all married to the idea of sweet fillings for this crust, but a quiche sounds sooooooo good and would make my bf very happy :) Broccoli and cheese is such a great combination, too!
