Love the ease of this pastry! It is tender and perfect for a quiche. Will be wonderful for meat pies at Christmas. I did have a wee bit of trouble fingering it into the pan as it kept springing back, so gave it a quick roll. Sorry the photos do not show the pastry very well. Will be keeping this recipe handy! Thanks for sharing Pia! Made for Billboard Recipe Tag.
