Cinnamon Pie Pastry

Cinnamon pie pastry is made with our delicious cinnamon butter! This pastry is much sweeter than the usual pastry that we make here. It is a shortcrust pastry made specifically for tarts and sweet pies. If you’re looking for a less sweet and more savoury pastry, however, you can find our cumin pie pastry.

Cinnamon Pie Pastry
You don’t need to use this for pies however, it works in any type of pastry. Mostly sweet pastries and it the pastry itself is rather malleable.

Turmeric Pie Pastry

Turmeric pie pastry can be made with either turmeric butter or simply adding around 2 tablespoons of turmeric and a teaspoon of cumin to the pastry. It’s delicious and serves a malleable crust! Though it is best made with our turmeric butter or homemade butter at least.

The pastry can be used to make an array of delicious dishes! Here are one’s that we recommend:

  • Peach Tart – a soft and sweet tart which goes well with ice cream.
  • Cinnamon Pineapple Pie. This pie is extremely delectable! The cinnamon and nutmeg gives it such an awe-inspiring flavour!

Peach Tart

This delicate peach tart has a slightly sweet flavour but is not sweet enough to mask the peach flavour. Using canned peaches the recipe serves as a cheap dessert. Similarly to our pineapple pie– we drain the liquid from the can in order to help it thicken in the oven.

You can use our pie pastry recipe for the pastry for the tart. The pastry is slightly sweet and adds a great crust.

This dessert is great with topping with ice cream and is best served hot as it deepens the peach flavour. It is best also with a custard topping as well.

Pie Pastry

This pie pastry goes well with numerous pies and creates a good and malleable crust! We mostly recommend sweet pies with this but you can do savoury too! The pastry tastes the best when made with homemade butter which you can easily make with double cream!

You can use this pastry to make a delicious peach tart as well if you’re looking for something sweet! If you use this- we recommend you refrigerate the pastry at least an hour before using then warm it to room temperature to make it easy to roll. If it’s too dry- add more ice water as well!
