  • Put it cold for a minimum of a ½ hour, or make the dough the day before you need it.
  • Let the dough rest in the fridge for a minimum of ½ hour. You can make it ahead and leave it overnight.
    If the dough is too stiff to roll out, let it sit on the counter for a while.
    (You can roll the dough out before you let it rest.)
  • Roll out your shortcrust pastry relatively thinly approx. 2-3 mm (0.08-0.1 inches).

Small circles

  • Cut the shortcrust pastry into circles with a round cookie cutter.
    Use a cutter 7-9 cm (2.76-3.54 inches) in diameter, with a smooth or wavy edge.
    Roll out the leftover dough and repeat.

Mini pies and pie shells

  • Place each circle in or on the pan, press it down and smooth it out.
    Place them upside down on a greased muffin pan to form shells - or inside and "blind bake" as usual.

Cookie medals

  • Place the circles on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.
    Be careful not to damage the pastry edge if you have a wavy edge.

Pie

  • Roll out a circle that is a few inches larger in diameter than your pie tin.
    If you have a large pie tin, roll your pastry on baking paper, it makes the dough easier to move.

Bake

  • Bake your pie shells or cookies at 180°C fan oven (356°F fan oven or 392°F) for 8 - 20 minutes until golden, depending on size - all ovens are different.
