This is a post St. Patrick’s Day quiche I like making with leftover corned beef; inspired after brainstorming with my husband for something besides sandwiches or hash. I have also made this with deli pastrami or corned beef other times of the year. Serve with a dollop of horseradish cream sauce = a mixture of sour cream and fresh grated horseradish. Note: this was NOT a Ricotta entry as is shown in the contest entries - my mistake, oops! —lapadia

ALL BUTTER CRUST
Add the butter, flour and salt in a food processor bowl, pulse lightly until the mixture resembles wet looking pea size particles.
Add water, 1 tablespoon at a time, pulsing a couple times after each tablespoon. Keep adding water until the dough just starts to gather into larger clumps. Place dough into a re-sealable plastic bag or plastic wrap and pat into a disk. Seal and refrigerate for 30 minutes.
Remove the dough disk to a flour work surface.
Roll out to a 10 inch round. Fit the dough into a 9-inch pie dish.
