Pleasing Potato Peel Pie
Downton fans get to see Downton actors in the new Netflix release of the Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society. The original potato peel pie recipe from the book lists only peels, mashed potatoes and beet root). My version has a delicous soft potato filling offset by nice crunchy crust and topping.
