Extra SHORTCRUST PASTRY = Homemade cookies

Food for thoughts, Hobbies, My recipes

A young woman living in Terento, Alto Adige gave this recipe to me a lot of years ago. Sometimes I use part whole wheat flour and since I’m busy, I tend to double the recipe and store a part of the shortcrust pastry in the freezer, so whenever I have unexpected visitors I would just take the dough out of the freezer 2 hours before using it. With this shortcrust pastry you can make fruit pies, cookies(you can glaze them with chocolate or just sprinkle them with icing sugar) or use the pastry to make the famous Apple Strudel Pie. This evening, I prepared a Fig pie for tomorrow’s celebration of Happy Father’s Day but I found myself with extra pastry dough so I thought, why not try preparing cookies with it? A heart shaped Fig pie + cookies to greet someone “HAPPY FATHER’S DAY!”
