Wholemeal Pastry

This quantity of pastry is sufficient for the base and top of a 18cm/7” pie, a quiche such as our Caramelized Onion Tart, or many small tarts. Gather up any unused pastry dough and trimmings, then wrap and freeze them for use at a later date.

This dough worked perfectly for us when using it for just the top lid of a chicken pot pie in a skillet. So buttery and good texture. Using this recipe every time for the future. Thanks !

I have used different brands of wholemeal flour over the years especially for breadmaking. The quality and result vary. Doves produce the best texture and indeed flavour whatever you are cooking.

Hi just wondered how long the wholemeal pastry keeps in the fridge before cooking?
