I wasn't sure whether this was supposed to be served warm or cold so I tried it both ways and found cold to be better. I don't know how big the pastry shell was supposed to be, but I had about half the mix left over? I also found it very lemony, next time I'd use only one teaspoon of lemon extract. But it was a great easy way to use up some leftover buttermilk.

I'm wondering how much bodily damage can be done if I eat the whole thing.
