Sweet Shortcrust Pastry. A rich decadent flavour pastry recipe , it is one of the best pastries of all. What it provides is a light crisp, melting crust, which has all the important flavors that you imagine in home-made pastry to be. 

This sweet shortcrust pastry recipe is the perfect base for your pies,tarts and other sweet recipes.Just stick to the correct measurements and follow the method exactly and you will see how easy it is. 

What I personally feel is making short pastry is easy than baking any other thing. It is very quickly made in food processor but you can also make it by hand.

I have found Sainsbury the best brand. Some of it’s basic things are amazingly good and are available in good prices.I used this sainsbury’s baking block in this recipe and trust me it is cheaper than butter but its taste and texture is amazingly good for pastries. So do try it if you are living in UK. 

Make sure to use good quality ingredients for best results.
