      I'll be the first to admit that I'm no pastry chef, but this one worked for me! I did halve the recipe (so I got a little extra egg; I just cut back on the vinegar and water) and I used butter only. I blind baked it a little then filled it with Shepherd's Pie, complete with mashed potatoes (more butter!!!). I am really pleased with how well it turned out and I will make it again now that the weather has turned somewhat chilly because it rated good votes all round the table. Thank you Connie.
