Mix the butter and flour in a food processor or by hand, until the mixture has a granular consistency. Add the water and knead into the dough.

Prick several holes in the bottom with a fork and blind bake in the oven at 400° for 15 minutes. Let cool. Sauté onion and spinach with butter in a frying pan, then spread the mixture evenly onto the quiche base. Whisk together the milk, eggs, salt and pepper and pour over spinach and onion. Top with sliced sun-dried tomatoes, olives and the Jarlsberg® Cheese. Bake at 350° for 35-40 minutes.
