How to Make Shortcrust Pastry?

Shortcrust pastry is widely used by more and more cooks these days. It is quite easy to prepare and you do not have to wait for it to rise like ordinary dough.

With the shortcrust pastry can be prepared both sweet and savory products, from cakes to pastry pies.

One of the most important things to know about making shortcrust pastry is that all of the ingredients should be cold.

The flour must be dry. Shortcrust pastry should be baked in a non greased baking pan. Before proceeding to baking, you must spread the dough with egg yolk. The pastries made from this dough are baked at a temperature of 220 to 250°C.

Rolling it out only happens in one direction.
