Shortcrust pastry is a really versatile and very easy pastry to make. It only requires a few basic ingredients that result in a deliciously crisp, buttery "melt in the mouth" finished product.
This pastry works excellently as a base for savoury or sweet dishes. For ages, this has been my go-to recipe when making quiche as it is truly a non-fail delicate pastry.
Spelt flour can be replaced with All-Purpose Flour at a 1:1 ratio.
