Almond Vanilla Pastry

Base for 1 pie
by Tenina Holder

This fragrant pastry is just delicious to sub out any plain old pastry for a sweet pie or tart. It is simple and quick to make, rolls beautifully and you will notice the aromatic addition to your palate when you eat it. 

So many options, so little time.
