“I had been planning on making a meat pie with ground meat and puff pastry dough for a dinner party, but 2 hours before the party, I realized that instead of buying pastry sheets, I had bought pastry shells, which would never work. So after the compulsory freak out, I created this dish and was glad I did, because we finished every drop!”
