Shortcrust pastry recipe with of 24-04-2016 [Updated on 29-08-2018]

This water-based shortcrust pastry is vegan and very light: without butter and without eggs, to satisfy those who are on a diet or simply want to avoid animal derivatives. Obviously the classic shortcrust pastry is another thing, but if you want to treat yourself to a sweet without many guilt feelings, this could be the right recipe. An example? You can make us some nice biscuits filled with homemade jam, like I did, and serve a healthy and delicious snack to your children :)

I'll leave you with today's recipe and I'm going to go and throw myself back in bed, today I don't want to lift a finger :) basin and happy Sunday


How to make water-based shortcrust pastry

Mix the water and oil in a bowl.

Add sugar, salt, yeast, flour and flavorings.

Knead until you get a homogeneous dough.

Let the pastry rest for 15 minutes at room temperature, covered with a cloth, then use it to prepare pies and biscuits.

I made some jam filled cookies. I rolled out the pastry on a floured surface.

I made some rounds with an 8 cm pastry cutter.

I stuffed them with some homemade orange marmalade.

And I closed in a half moon, sealing the edges with a fork.

With this dose you get 15-20 cookies. Place them on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.

And cook for about 10 minutes in a preheated convection oven at 180 ° C. Remember that being without egg they will remain very light, be careful not to overcook them otherwise they will be hard!
