  • Easy Mixer Pastry
    Very quick and easy to prepare.

    1. 4 cups of all purpose flour (I lightly spoon this into the measure cup)
    2. 1 cup of unsalted butter, cut in 1/2 inch cubes (yes, I use unsalted butter in all my baking)
    3. 1 cup of vegetable shortening, cut in 1/2 inch cubes (I use Crisco)
    4. 1 tsp salt
    5. 1 cup of ice water
    1. Place flour, butter, Crisco and salt in stand mixer bowl with the paddle attachment or if using a food processor, use the blade knife.
    2. Pulse until there are pea size bits of the fat in the bowl. This will not take very long . ..15 seconds or so . . . .. do not overwork the mixture
    3. Add the cold water all at once and mix until dough just starts to come together. Again, do not over process this mixture.
    4. Remove from bowl, divide into three.
    5. Shape into 3 disks, wrap in saran wrap and then put in a ziploc bag and chill for at least 30 minutes.
    6. I usually make mine the day or night before.
    7. Remove from fridge and roll out into shapes required using a dusting of flour.
    8. I use a silpat or a tupperware sheet to roll pastry on. Less sticking and much easier cleanup of the kitchen.
    1. Pastry may alse be frozen. When planning to use, let it thaw completely, but still cold for rolling out.
