You can make delicious cookies from any trimmings when using the pastry (or make some specially for cookies).
Remember, Pastry is only as good as the flour you use. Don't buy cheap flour.
300 g (10 oz) flour
200 g (7 oz) butter or margarine
15 ml (1 tbsp) rum (optional)
30 ml (2 tbsp) sour cream
75 g (3 oz) caster sugar
1. Rub the flour and butter together.
2. Mix in the remaining ingredients to make a firm dough.
3. Knead well and let it rest for half an hour before using.
This is excellent for any pie or tart that requires a sweet pastry.
