MUST READ! There is an error in this recipe. This is an original Betty Crocker recipe from way back. I use it all the time and I LOVE it!!!! It is supposed to say 2/3 cup plus 2 Tbsp shortening for the crust (not 1/3cup). That is why "Tinkerbell" had a hard time working with the crust.
The celery seed is what makes this recipe. It is amazing!
Oh my gosh! This is serious comfort food! I love celery seed & use it a lot but it's rarely called for as an ingredient. I loved that it was the star of the show here. I was going to rate 4 stars because for some reason the dough was difficult to work with. Not too dry yet not quite pliable enough, but the end result is far above a 5 star! The smoked paprika doesn't overpower any of the other ingredients, but adds just enough of it's smoky flavor to add dimension to the filling. My entire family loved this recipe, including my toddler who ate an entire serving! I made it just as directed except I used a deep dish pie plate instead of the 9x9 square. Thanks for posting this recipe, tonypo! Made & enjoyed for Spring 2010 Pick A Chef. You've been adopted! :) http://www.recipezaar.com/bb/viewtopic.zsp?t=327498&postdays=0&postorder=asc&start=0
