Wholemeal Spelt Pastry

Makes 400g pastry

This quantity of pastry can be used for the top and base of an 20cm/8” pie, to line a large baking tray or to make about 24 small tarts. We like to add a pinch of salt when using the pastry for a savoury dish although you could choose to avoid this if you are adding a sweet filling. If you don’t use all pastry when you make it, simply wrap and freeze it for another day.

"OR simply press it into the baking dish using your fingers." This technique has revolutionised my quiches! I never got to grips with rolling then transferring pastry into a case, but using this technique works perfectly well! Spelt flour makes a lovely pastry and this recipe works well for me every time.
