A French friend of mine gave me this recipe for shortcrust pastry and it works a treat every time. I use the food processor to make it even easier. It makes one 25cm pastry base for a quiche or a fruit tart.

This is indeed a fantastic and flaky short pastry. It melts in the mouth. Yum! - 06 Sep 2002 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
This was delicious! The only thing I added was a little more salt. I used this crust for a spinach quiche, prebaking the crust for 12 minutes before adding the filling. This is a great crust recipe for non-dessert pies, because it's rich without being sweet. - 17 Oct 2002 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
