Pat 2/3 of dough in bottom of 8-inch round cake pan. Bake at 425 degrees until lightly browned, about 15 minutes. Cool on rack and turn oven down to 325 degrees.

      Made for ZWT 7. Jackie, this is a keeper!! Made for lunch today. A confession: I made my own sour cream pastry (among my recipes here) because I am so bad at any random shortcrust pastry . Because we are only 2, DH and me, I did make the entire recipe, but made 4 individual pastries (quite generous size), and the rest of the filling I baked in a small dish. We enjoyed the pastries (no, I could not finish mine: I saved the 2nd one, LOL!). The baked dish -- the filling without crust -- is in my very cold fridge, to be used as a side dish withing the next couple of days. It should be perfect with simple baked/roasted chicken pieces. I added a small teaspoon of nutmeg to the flling. I added some herbs, but did not have chives (drat -- found fresh chives later at the local shop). I'd add this hint: beat up 3 whole eggs, and brush your pastry with egg before blind baking. The sour cream pastry I made does not need pre-baking, but all pastry needs an egg wash for a golden colour. Thanks! Lovely and easy recipe!
