“The pick of the lot! This recipe was given to me many years ago by a nun who was a chef. She willingly gave me her recipe and needless to say I have never bought a pie since I got this recipe. It is never fail. The recipe is also in the company's coming cookbook---Pies. NOTE:Use this pastry for quiches, meat pies,turnovers,sausage rolls,or even small rounds.”
