Potato Pie

I have tried unsuccessfully to make a Potato Tartaine.  So today I was googling ideas and stumbled upon a NY times potato tartaine and a recipe for a potato tart with pastry crust I mashed up the two and added some stuff and it came out amazing.  I have never made a pastry or pie crust before and debated driving the 45 minutes round trip to buy store bought but figured this was an opportunity. This recipe is labor intensive and does take time I might tweak it later but was delicious as is. There are lots of things I can think of to change it up will try in the future.
