Whisk together flour, 1/2 tsp. salt and baking powder in a medium bowl. Using a pastry blender, cut in butter until pieces are pea size. Stir in yogurt and 1 Tbsp. milk. Stir in enough of the additional milk, 1 Tbsp. at a time, until dough holds together. Gather dough and press together to form a ball; knead 5 to 10 times or until no longer crumbly. Shape into a 1-in.-thick disk. Wrap in plastic wrap; refrigerate for 30 minutes or up to 2 days.
Tender shoots of fresh asparagus are always a welcome sign of spring. Quiche is a great way to serve asparagus, paired here with other crisp vegetables and plenty of gooey Gruyère.
