 NOTES : Tootie Notes:With this recipe was a recipe for the pastry 
 shells. I tried it and it was wonderful...but I have served this with 
 frozen pastry shells from the grocery store..I COULD tell the 
 difference but no one else seemed the least bit unhappy with the 
 taste. Will post the Pastry Shell recipe at a later time.
