Sweet Pastry

11 May

This is a nice and simple pastry that is often used for sweet tarts and puddings. This pastry is very easy and quick to make so doesn’t keep you hanging about!

Ingredients:
225g Butter
150g Caster sugar
4 Eggs
450g Plain flour

Estimated time: 10 minutes (not including the resting time)

Directions:

To be honest this is just like making a cake or biscuits. Start off with weighing your butter and sugar together in a bowl and cream together until light and fluffy.

Slowly add the eggs to the mix one at a time. Make sure you allow each egg to mix in completely before adding the next as this will reduce the amount of lumps 🙂

Once the eggs have been added carefully add the flour a bit at a time. This will make sure there are no lumps and prevent a dust cloud from occurring!! Keep adding the flour until all has mixed in and your left with a dough/thick paste.

Scrape the dough out onto some cling film and wrap up before placing it on a plate in the fridge. Leave this in the fridge to rest for about 20 minutes.

Once the pastry has rested you can roll it out for what ever tasty thing you want. This pastry is good to blind bake like normal pastry at 170c.
