The only recipe you will need for Thermomix Sweet Shortcrust Pastry. It’s completely fail proof and is ready in a matter of minutes.
Similar to the Shortcrust Pastry recipe from the Everyday Cookbook, this version uses icing sugar to make it sweet, and is made without eggs. I’ve tried making the version from the Everyday Cookbook using egg yolks, but every time it turns into a crumbly mess which cannot be salvaged!
I love making this recipe in the Thermomix as it saves so much time. Gone are the days where you have to stand tirelessly rubbing butter and flour together with your fingers and dropping the mixture everywhere along the way!
This is the perfect pastry to use as the base of my Thermomix Lemon Tart.
