How will you celebrate the day?

The definition of pastry is...a dough of flour, shortening, and water, used as a base and covering in baked dishes such as pies.  ("spread the mixture over the pastry")

That covers a lot of territory.

Did you know there are seven--SEVEN--kinds of pastry?

  • Shortcrust Pastry
  • Puff Pastry
  • Flaky Pastry
  • Rough Puff Pastry
  • Choux Pastry
  • Filo Pastry
  • Suet Crust Pastry
  • Hot Water Crust Pastry
Cream puffs seemed like a great choice for pastry.  What is YOUR favorite kind of pastry?
