A very pretty jewel colored dessert with fragrant vanilla bean pastry. It is simple and so delicious. A really pretty addition to any meal. Your pastry will have a peppered look, which is a result of the vanilla bean. If you prefer not to have that look, use vanilla extract instead. It is a deliciously short pastry, and yes, we made it to Sunday before eating the pie, and eaten cold, the pastry was simply like eating a shortbread with a sweet but tangy filling.
