Sour Cream Pastry

Psted by MeganJane Converted from Maggie Beer’s Recipe  from the Thermomix Forum http://www.forumthermomix.com/index.php?topic=3588.0

Makes one large quiche or two smaller ones. To make a quiche, allow 20 minutes resting time for pastry and another 20 minutes resting time once pastry is in the tin, then a further 1/2 hour or so cooking time  This is a deliciously short, flaky pastry that’s well worth making.

Ingredients:

200g chilled butter in chunks

250g plain flour

Place bowl in the fridge for 10 minutes to chill it and  then add flour and butter and process for a few seconds until it looks like breadcrumbs.

120g sour cream (1/2 cup)

Add to bowl and process on speed 3-4 for a few seconds until crumbly, but beginning to come together. Tip out on to floured board. Bring together and throw on to counter a couple of times  -this helps prevent shrinkage! Wrap in plastic wrap and refrigerate 20 minutes.

Place on to silicone mat. Bash with rolling pin to help with rolling out. Make a large rectangle or circle and place in tin/tray. Rest in fridge for another 20 minutes. Bake in a very hot oven (220C) for 5 – 10 minutes until beginning to brown. If you have high sides on quiche tin, cover with foil. Remove from oven and discard foil. Inhibit pastry by placing a tea towel over the top and pressing down.

Pour in desired filling and bake for 25 – 35 minutes, depending on size.
