Sourdough Quiche/Pie Crust??

Hey was hoping someone could help me, want to take advantage of some starter discard by making a quiche crust.

Does anyone have anything they've had success with? Any advice?

Weights or percentages would be ideal and if I could employ the lazy kitchen-aid even better.

thanks so much!

it is an acid and as such takes the place of the lemon juice or buttermilk that you might use instead in pie crust as well as many many other uses. Google is your friend. Good luck ! You will never have enough discard :)

 Thank you! Have had some luck with some searches.

Settled on this one for a first attempt.

First attempt going in the fridge overnight. Immediately noticed how large some of those butter chunks are. Oh well, that's what first takes are for,

With pie crust you want chunks of butter, it is what makes the crust flaky. I will bet it works just fine.
