      The dough does not have to form a ball but it should be soft and silken.

      Turn dough out onto waxed paper, form into two balls, wrap and chill for 30 minutes.

      A nice, buttery pastry and not too heavy. I used it for a pear and apple pie and it was very pleasant. However, in future, I think I would rather use this pastry for a savoury tart or pie. Thank you for a quick and easy recipe :)

      This is a great recipe. I whipped it up in my kitchen-aid. The crust turned out light and flaky. Because of a milk allergy in our home I did have to substitute the butter for margarine. It worked wonderful.
