Ready made pastry
 
Does anyone know where I can buy ready made pastry in blocks, as opposed to ready rolled? I find when I use ready the ready rolled stuff I buy here it's too thin and pliable and the filling leaks out.

Alternatively, if anyone has a link to an easy recipe for flaky or shortcrust I'd be grateful :)

The blocks of it are usually in the same chiller cabinet. Maybe your Migros or Coop was just out of stock?

I was very surprised to read your reply. But you're right! I'll get those kinds next time ..... now that I know about them. :D

They look like this, Cherub:

bio-kuchenteig-block
m-classic-blaetterteig-im-block
bio-blaetterteig

Sometimes the ready-rolled stuff is a bit too thin so you need the block variety to roll it to how you want it.

Thanks for the links to these products. Perhaps it's because I live in a district of Basel that only has smaller branches of Migros etc and they don't stock it. The local Migros is a partner store and the COOP is a local.

I've never been to the bigger Migros about 10 mins walk from me at Birsfelden, so this'll give me an opportunity to look in there.

Or maybe you just overlooked them - like I did. :)

It's too much trouble to make flaky pastry from scratch. This shortcrust one is good and easy:

I got some today (was a big Migros though, did not check my little one yet".
They were all the way on the top shelf, they make you stretch for it.

Maybe I need to remember my reading glasses :msnnerd: - I need them with my contact lenses but sometimes forget to put them in my bag! I have pairs all over my flat :D

The Migros on Claraplatz is a MMM - so should have it.
