Oil Pastry

Oil pastry can be used instead of shortcrust pastry. As it is more greasy, it is therefore more suitable for savoury rather than sweet dishes. Also note that it should be used straight away and not stored.

Remember, Pastry is only as good as the flour you use. Don't buy cheap flour.

40 ml (2 1/2 tbsp) vegetable oil
1 cup (1/4 lb) 125 g plain flour (bread flour)
1 pinch of salt
