Make perfect shortcrust pastry every time with our easy recipe. Pastry is a dough of flour, water, and shortening (solid fats, including butter or lard) that may be savory or sweetened. Pastry dough is rolled out thinly and used as a base for baked products. Pastry is differentiated from bread by having a higher fat content, which contributes to a flaky or crumbly texture.
