Preparation <p>For the Crust:</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Preheat oven to 350 F.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Cut cold butter into ¼ inch cubes.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Add flour and butter to a small mixing bowl. Use your hands to combine until the mixture resembles small pebbles.</p>
<p>Add water a tablespoon at a time. Continue mixing with your hands until the mixture sticks together when you squeeze it, being careful to not over mix. The batter should not become a solid ball.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Line a cupcake tin with 12 liners.</p>
<p>Divide batter evenly between the liners. Press batter into the bottom of each liner and push it about halfway up the sides.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Bake for 15 minutes.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>For the Roasted Asparagus:</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Break the tough ends off of each spear and discard. </p>
<p>Cut the asparagus into 3/4 inch pieces. </p>
<p>In a small bowl, toss asparagus with olive oil and salt. </p>
<p>Spread asparagus on a baking sheet and broil at 450 F for 15 minutes. </p>
<p> </p>
<p>For the Quiche:</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Preheat oven to 350 F.</p>
<p>In a small bowl, mix the gruyere and flour. Set aside.</p>
<p>In a medium-sized bowl, whip eggs with heavy whipping cream and mustard until fully integrated.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Sprinkle gruyere evenly over pre-baked pie crusts.</p>
<p>Spoon crab meat on top of the gruyere, evenly distributing it between the cupcakes.</p>
<p>Pour egg mixture over crab meat, filling the cupcake liners about ¾ full.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Arrange asparagus pieces on top of the egg mixture.</p>
<p>Bake for 30 minutes.</p>
<p>Remove from cupcake tins and set on paper towels to dry any moisture off of the bottoms of the liners.</p>
<p>Serve warm.</p>
