BASIC SHORT-CRUST PASTRY



Basic Short-Crust Pastry image

Regarding this basic short-crust pastry: the dough takes just 10 minutes to make, so resist the temptation to buy that pre-made crust from the refrigerator case. Homemade pastry always tastes better. Make it the day before. You can even roll it out, line the tart pan and keep it frozen until you're ready to bake.

Categories     side dish

Time 10m

Yield One 9 and 1/2-inch tart crust

Number Of Ingredients 4

145 grams all-purpose flour (about 1 cup)
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
1 stick cold unsalted butter (1/4 pound), cut in 1/8-inch pieces
3 tablespoons ice water

Steps:

  • Put flour and salt in the bowl of a stand mixer or food processor. Add butter and quickly cut it into flour until mixture resembles coarse meal.
  • Add ice water and mix briefly, about 30 seconds, to form a soft dough. Remove dough, shape into a thick disk, wrap in plastic and refrigerate for at least 2 hours or overnight. Bring to cool room temperature before rolling.
  • To roll, lightly flour dough and counter. Roll out gradually, periodically letting dough rest for a moment before continuing. This makes rolling easier and will keep dough from shrinking back during baking.
  • Roll dough to a thin round approximately 13 inches in diameter, then trim to make a 12-inch circle (refrigerate and save trimmings for patching). Lay dough loosely into a 9 1/2-inch fluted tart pan with removable bottom, letting it relax a bit. Fold overlap back inside to make a double thickness, then press firmly against the pan so the finished edge is slightly higher than the pan. Refrigerate or freeze for an hour before pre-baking.

SHORTCRUST PASTRY



Shortcrust Pastry image

This basic pastry is used in many popular recipes, from mince pies to quiches; it's also one of the easiest pastries to start with. The uncooked dough can be frozen or kept in the fridge for a couple of days.

Provided by Food Network

Categories     dessert

Time 50m

Yield makes 1 (14 ounce) crust

Number Of Ingredients 4

7 ounces all-purpose flour, sifted
Pinch of salt
7 tablespoons chilled butter, cubed
1/2 to 1 medium egg, beaten

Steps:

  • Place the flour, salt, and butter in a food processor and whiz or pulse briefly. Add half the beaten egg and continue to whiz. You might add a little more egg, but not too much as the mixture should be just moist enough to come together.
  • If making by hand, rub the butter into the flour until it resembles coarse bread crumbs. Then, using your hands, add just enough egg to bring the dough together. With your hands, flatten out the ball of dough, until it is about 3/4-inch thick, and then wrap in plastic wrap, or place in a plastic bag, and leave in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes or, if you are pushed for time, in the freezer for 10 to 15 minutes.
  • Variations:
  • Sweet shortcrust pastry: In place of the pinch of salt, use 1 tablespoon of icing sugar.
  • Sour cream shortcrust pastry: Replace the egg with 2 tablespoons of sour cream or creme fraiche, adding just enough to bring the dough together.

Time 2h

Yield about 1 1/2 pounds dough

Number Of Ingredients 4

BASIC SHORT-CRUST PASTRY



Basic Short-Crust Pastry image

From Anna Thomas' The Vegetarian Epicure. I learned to cook from this book. My book is falling apart so I'm putting it in so I can print it out.

Provided by Amethyst42

Categories     Savory Pies

Time 50m

Yield 1 serving(s)

Number Of Ingredients 4

1 1/2 cups flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup butter, well chilled
1/3 cup ice water (scant)

Steps:

  • Sift together the flour and the salt. Slice the cold butter rapidly and drop the slices into the flour. With a pastry blender or two sharp knives, cut in the butter until the mixture resembles coarse corn meal.
  • Sprinkle the ice water of the flour-butter mixture and stir it very quickly with a fork, until the dough gathers together. Form the dough into a ball, wrap it in wax paper or foil, and chill for about 2 hours.
  • A note here that Canadian wheat is 'harder' than wheat from the USA, and you may need to add a little more water to make it gather.
  • Makes enough dough for 1 large, 11 or 12 inch quiche shell.
  • PREPARING A QUICHE OR TART SHELL.
  • On a lightly floured surface, roll the chilled dough out into a circle about 2 1/2 inches larger than your quiche pan. Roll the circle of dough loosely around your rolling pin and unroll it over the quiche pan, centering it as well as possible. Press the sides against the rim of the pan, pushing the extra dough down a bit to make and edge that is slightly thicker than the bottom. Trim the dough off with a sharp knife about 1/4 inch above the rim of the pan (it shrinks down a bit while baking).
  • Using a pastry crimper of the blunt end of a kitchen knife, crimp the ridge of the dough neatly just above the rim of the pan. Prick the bottom of the shell all over with a fork (VERY IMPORTANT!) and chill it for 1/2 hour.
  • PREBAKING A QUICHE OR TART SHELL.
  • Line the inside of the pastry shell with a piece of aluminum foil. and fill it with dried beans or rice (which can be kept in a jar and reused for this purpose forever). Bake the shell in a preheated 450 degree oven for about 8 minutes, then remove the beans and foil, prick again with a fork (VERY IMPORTANT!), and return to the hot oven for another 4 to 5 minutes, or until the bottom of the shell begins to colour. Allow the shell to cool slightly on a rack, then fill and finish baking according to recipe.

Add water if needed, a spoonful at a time, just until the mixture holds when pressed between your fingers. Form into two discs.
