: > Bought the puff pastry
: Mince pies are made with shortcrust. How bloody lazy do you have to be
: to buy puff pastry rather than make shortcrust?
Wanted puff pastry pies just like my mother made. She used frozen puff, but
made absolutely everything else, bread, conserves, etc.
Puff pastry is hard to make correctly and a lot of cookbooks advise buying it.
But the taste is much superior to shortcrust as long
as they are being eaten very fresh.
If I was bloody lazy, I'd just have bought them. And not involved the tiny
people in the process. That added a lot of washing to
the piles, clothes and dishes.
And I will be bloody lazy next time. 4 days off work ain't enough for this
