This shortcrust pastry has a slight festive twist to it with a bit of mixed spice added. It can be adapted to any season or perhaps do a savoury flavouring with a selection of fresh herbs.

Ingredients

  • 200g plain four
  • 200g unsalted butter
  • 2 eggs
  • 75g sugar
  • 2tsp mixed spice
  • 1tsp ginger
  • 1tsp cinnamon

Method

  • STEP 1
    Mix the butter and flour together until it resemble a crumble mixture.
  • STEP 2
    Add the sugar, mixed spice, ginger, and cinnamon stir well.
  • STEP 3
    Add eggs and with a spatula or palette knife mix until the dough comes together.
  • STEP 4
    Once dough is together, mix with one hand til it comes to a ball and there and no bits left in the bottom and knead well on a lightly floured surface.
  • STEP 5
    Wrap up tightly in cling film before rolling out for it to rest. This allows the dough to harden up a bit and will stick less to the board when rolling.
