Baby Food

Back in March we had a baby shower for one of the other residents.  She has since had the baby and is back to work...that shows how delayed I am in posting this!  I decided to take one of the most typical but enjoyed shower foods...baby quiche.  (Obviously the theme was baby!).  I found this recipe on allrecipes.com and it was really good.  The pictures are lack-luster, so you'll just have to trust me! 

Mini Cheese Quiches 
1/2 cup (1 stick) butter, softened
3 oz cream cheese, softened
1 cup AP flour
1 cup shredded white cheese (suggested Monterey Jack)
2 eggs
1/2 cup milk
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon pepper

Cream butter and cream cheese.  Add flour and beat until blended.  Refrigerate for 1 hour.  (The recipe suggests pre-dividing into 24 balls)  Press balls into the bottom and up the sides of mini-muffin tins.  Sprinkle a teaspoon of cheese on the bottom.  Meanwhile, beat eggs, milk, salt, and pepper in a bowl.  Spoon this mixture over the cheese using a tablespoon.  Bake at 350 degrees F for 30-35 minutes or until golden.  Allow to stand for five minutes before serving.  Enjoy!

Do you think I could put spinach in these and it not cause a problem? :-)
