Maggie Beer is just the best cook here in Australia and her recipe for pastry is outstanding.
Ingredients: 250gms plain flour
200 gms butter
120 ml sour cream.
Blitz butter and flour to breadcrumb stage and then add the sour cream to make a soft dough refrigerate for a little while then use in the old fashioned way. Left overs can be frozen and ready for next time. It really is the simplest pastry.
Have to make the shortbread now-being a Scot I cannae do without it!
And I will never make chicken pate ever again... I even put some on the ceiling!!!LOL
