Impressive but surprisingly easy dishes to make
So I have made my Delia mincemeat but I didn't like her pastry last year for her mince pies I didn't think it was rich enough - want something with egg in it I think. Anybody use another pastry recipe?
I use the paté brisée recipe from a book called 'Faites vos patisseries comme Lenotre', it's rich but really good and behaves well.Here it is250g flour10g sugar7g salt175-200g butter1 egg1-1 1/2 tbsp milk if neededCut the butter into dice and process with the flour, sugar and salt until fine crumbs. Add the egg and milk if needed to come into a ball. Wrap in cling film and put in fridge for 30 mins before rolling out. It can be frozen too.Despite the huge amount of butter, it makes a very silky almost bread dough like pastry.
