I really wanted to create a section “The Basics”, because even if that’s quite handy to buy ready made food in the supermarket when we do not have any time, that’s also really nice to make some home-made pastry when we do have some. That’s so more tasty and definitely more healthy ! So here I come with my short pastry with spelt flour.
This a simple short pastry that I made with some spelt flour, a flour that I use now almost everywhere, but you can also use white flour if you wish too.
Of course, that’s easier to use a kitchen machine; but you can also use your hand, if you are not afraid of elbow grease. Or maybe you got a comprehensive boyfriend/husband !
Before I using my hands or my thermomix. Thanks to my husband, who got me the best food processor ever for my 30 : a Kenwood. Now everything got easier. You pour all ingredients and that’s almost it ! The last time I bought a ready-made pastry … I cannot even remember !
That’s not cheaper, but we just live once ! So we have to enjoy every part of our lives !
Here I come with the recipe.
- 300 gr. of spelt flour
- 100 gr. of diced butter
- 1 dl. of water
- 1 cc. of salt
- Pour all ingredients on your food processor and knead for 5 to 10 minutes until you get an homogeneous dough.
- You can use it straight away or cover with plastic foil and refrigerate to conserve.
