Shortcrust pastry (TM)

From Cookipedia

I am very suspicious of ready-made pastry as it can contain ingredients which are not required to be listed on the packaging, such as chicken feathers and even human hair. You can buy pastry which specifically states that it does not contain such dodgy ingredients, but it is rather expensive and making your own in a Thermomix is a doddle.



  1. Tip all of the ingredients into the bowl in the order given 15 seconds / Speed 6

Serving suggestions

Use for savoury pies and pasties.

Chef's notes

This method will not form it into a ball, so you will have to do that yourself, but it is easy enough.
