Homemade Pastries

  • 30 mins
  • Easy



  1. Prepare the pastry dough:
    • In a large mixing bowl, combine the flour and salt.
    • Add the cold cubed butter to the flour mixture and use a pastry cutter or your fingers to cut the butter into the flour until it resembles coarse crumbs.
    • Slowly add the cold water, a tablespoon at a time, mixing until the dough just comes together. Be careful not to overwork the dough.
    • Form the dough into a ball, wrap it in plastic wrap, and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes.
  2. Roll out the dough:
    • Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C).
    • On a lightly floured surface, roll out the chilled dough to about 1/4 inch thickness.
    • Use a cookie cutter or a knife to cut the dough into desired shapes. You can make circles, squares, or rectangles depending on your preference and the type of pastry you want to make.
  3. Fill the pastries:
    • Place a small amount of filling in the center of each pastry round. Leave some space around the edges.
    • If you’re making turnovers or hand pies, fold the dough over the filling and crimp the edges with a fork to seal.
    • If you’re making open-faced pastries, such as tarts, leave the edges exposed.
  4. Brush with egg wash:
    • In a small bowl, beat the egg with a tablespoon of milk or water to make an egg wash.
    • Brush the edges of the pastries with the egg wash. This will give them a nice golden color when baked.
  5. Bake the pastries:
    • Place the filled pastries on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.
    • Bake in the preheated oven for 15-20 minutes, or until the pastries are golden brown and flaky.
  6. Cool and serve:
    • Allow the pastries to cool slightly before serving.
    • Optionally, dust the pastries with powdered sugar before serving.
