Gee, Babetoo. What a dandy idea (a why-didn't-I-ever-think-of-that-one for me). Do you ever do that with plain pie pastry? I believe I'll give it a try - maybe with Aunt Bea's flavor suggestions. Then again, lemon....all the lemon talk on DC lately, besides setting off a lot of lip-smacking, must be causing a lemon-run all across the continent - maybe world-wide.
