"As I ate the oysters with their strong taste of the sea and their faint metallic taste that the cold white wine washed away, leaving only the sea taste and the succulent texture, and as I drank their cold liquid from each shell and washed it down with the crisp taste of the wine, I lost the empty feeling and began to be happy, and to make plans."--Ernest Hemingway

Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
This recipe came from Debbie Klein Wanderscheid and she found it in a very old cookbook because the entry was listed as Ann Goergen. Ann was married in 1945. The recipe does not give a temperature for the pastry shell. Pastry shell recipe was not included in the old cookbook. Possibly only a cookstove with no temperature guage was used.
