Pastry

I would like to know if anyone has seen frozen pastry in any of the stores in the Zurich area.

I would like to make an apple pie and would prefer not to bother with making my own crust.

Re: Pastry

look in the fridges rather than in freezers. You'll find several types of chilled pastries and doughs in any supermarket.

Re: Pastry

Can anyone explain which of the chilled pastry is closest to short crust pastry and puff pastry. I have tried a couple and not that impressed. Or do I just have to make my own?

Thanks

Re: Pastry

it usually shows a picture on the front and I always choose the one that resembles puff pastry, i have found it the same as the stuff I'd be in the UK

Re: Pastry

Always buy the most expensive pre-made crusts (often found pre-rolled). The difference is noticeable.

Re: Pastry

Look for the French names on the packages.

For shortcrust: Pate Brisee
For sweet shortcrust : Pate Sucre

I would actually like to make some sausage rolls, do you use puff pastry or Short crust?

My mum always uses shortcrust but since I got here I changed over to puff pastry (but I didn't tell her ).

In the UK you can buy ready made sausage meat for the rolls but I wonder if you can buy the same here?

Re: Pastry

I normally blitz up some pork pieces in the food processor, chuck in some apple and sage and blend until not-too-smooth.

Yes I puchased some pork sausages from COOP, they said they were chipolatas, but they tasted awful.

Re: Pastry

Simple short crust pastry for sweet pastries is very easy to make: 2 cups flour, 1 cup butter, 1/2 cup sugar (or less if you prefer less sweet). Mix well together and roll out or, easier still - press into the bottom of a baking paper lined pan.

As for puff pastry (Blaetterteig), it's hell to make, so it's best to get it from Denner (they have a decent one which I prefer to those from Migros or Coop).
