Short crust is the easiest and quickest of the pastry dough to prepare and suits both savory and sweet preparation.
Preparation time: 15 minutes•
Cooking time: 20 minutes
Serves: 4 people
Tip: Add 1 egg instead of the water to enrich the dough. Try to work the dough as quickly as possible- the more it is kneaded the more it will become elastic and shrink while baking.
I sometimes like to roll straight away the pastry and let it rest then before using.
If freezing, freeze ready rolled, between 2 sheets of baking parchment and keep in the freezer, wrapped in cling film 2 months maximum.
