Sweet Sour Cream Pastry
This light, flaky pastry is excellent for any kind of sweet fruit tart. It makes enough for two large, shallow tarts, 24 individual tarts, or about 50 mini tarts. It will keep in the fridge for about a week or can be frozen.
240 g butter, chilled
2 1/4 cups high-grade flour
2 tbsp sugar
1 cup sour cream
To make the pastry, place the butter, flour and sugar in a food processor and whizz until the mixture resembles fine breadcrumbs.
If making by hand, cut butter into small cubes and use your fingertips to work into combined flour and sugar.
Add the sour cream and pulse or mix until the dough starts to come together into a ball.
If it is still crumbly and does not bind add a little cold water.
Form mixture into a log shape, wrap in baking paper and chill for at least 20 minutes before using.
