Sweet pie dough
Pie pastry that can be filled with all kinds of goodies
pastry, pie, sweet pastry
one for brushing
Mix the dry ingredients in a bowl
Add the wet and knead as little as possible until the dough is evenly mixed
Wrap the dough in plastic and leave it in the fridge for 30- 60 minutes
Roll the dough out on a floured surface, make sure to flip the dough around often so it doesn't stick to the surface.
Lift the dough over to your form with the help of the rolling pin.
Trim off the edges and prickle the bottom of the dough with a fork
Leave to rest in the fridge for 30 minutes
Set the oven to 190 degrees Celsius
Add a sheet of greaseproof paper and fill the form with peas or rice
Bake for about 20 minutes
Reduce the heat to 160 degrees Celcius
Take out the rice and greaseproof paper and brush the pastry with a mixed egg yolk
bake for another 7 minutes (or until light brown)
You can use salted butter as well, hover hold back a bit on the salt. We also find it easier to roll the dough onto the rolling pin before moving it over the Pie pan.
