Anybody would be excited to receive this as a gift.You don't need a pastry board with this recipe. You will have a crunchy pastry. Not floury at all (with my video).
I figured up how to make a crispy short crust pastry without a pastry board.
-Do not let your batter separate at Step 2. If your batter separates, add just a tiny amount of sifted flour to bring it all together. -Use the leftover eggs from making the pastry for making the almond cream.
