Short Pastry

Short pastry is used for many recipes: sweet or savoury pies, tarta tatin, crostate, cookies.

Put the short pastry into the tin

Whatever I need it for, I never add sugar and always add a pinch of salt.

To roll the dough I use the Tupperware pastry mat for easy measurement and cleaning.

    I’m looking forward to making your crust. Christopher is the crust maker in this house but it would be nice to try it myself. 🙂
