Shortcrust Pastry
10 mins (prep 10)
5 ingredients
1 servings
Easy and economical to make for use to make your own pies and tarts. Times given are when using a food processor, if doing by hand add another 5 minutes. Don't include chill time. If you have hot hands would advise using a food processor. You end up with enough for 2 tart cases (9") or for the top and bottom of a 9" pie. If using for a sweet dish add 2 teaspoons sugar after you rub in butter. Use as is for savoury dishes. I have edited this to 8 serves for if used as 2 bottoms or a top and bottom it would equate to 8 serves, giving a truer nutritional panel. Still does not include sugar for sweet pastry. Please note referring to a 250ml metric cup for USA cups + 2 tablespoons.
