Pre-made pastry is great and there are lots of cool recipes can be made. Every now and then however it is nice to make pastry from scratch.
This very rich pastry recipe is great for pies or anything else you can think to make with it.
This is an easy shortcrust pastry dough that can be used with any savoury pie, flan or tart. Use straight away or store in the fridge until needed.
I love pies (my favourite meal is pie and mashed potatoes!) but I don't like the fat content of the pastry so I came up with this simple but very delicious idea. Use as you would any ordinary pastry or for pasties. All measurements are approximate. If you don't like the hassle of peeling the butternut pumpkin you can split it in half, take out the seeds and roast in a hot oven until it's soft about 30 - 45 minutes.
A sheet of puff pastry, some chopped onion, capsicum and tomatoes, feta cheese to top, and you have dinner or lunch. Delicious and healthy!
An essential recipe for anyone who loves baking. This recipe can be easily doubled to make enough for a two crust pie.
