Sweet Pastry

  • 150gr soft unsalted butter
  • 120gr caster sugar
  • 60gr egg
  • 300gr plain flour
  • 3gr salt

Everyone needs a good, basic pastry recipe, and this is one you can rely on. It’s easily adaptable if you want to add extra flavors like orange zest or vanilla. If you have any pastry left over, simply wrap it in clingfilm and freeze it to use another time

Cream together the butter, salt, and sugar very lightly.

Gradually add the eggs, mixing well between each addition. Make sure you scrape down the sides of the bowl so that all the ingredients are uniformly mixed

Add the flour and salt and mix until you have a combined dough don't overmix. Flatten out slightly then wrap in cling film and rest in the fridge for at least 2H before rolling
