Pastry Making.

The secret to good pastry making is all in how the cook handles the pastry. The pastry must be handled quickly and gently to obtain the flaky results that are most desirable. The flakiness is obtained when the shortening particles are surrounded and separated by the flour during mixing. When the pastry is baked the shortening melts and creates a delicate flake.

If the pastry is worked slowly and roughly then the shortening begins to melt during this process and the mixture becomes a solid mass which makes for a tough crust after baking.

It would also be beneficial to chill all the ingredients before mixing to prevent the shortening from melting too soon. It is also a good idea to use a pastry blender or some type of cooking utensil for mixing rather than your hands as this will prevent heat transfer.

A good pastry is tender and delicate with an even brown color. The pastry should not crumble and should produce layers of flat flakes piled on top of one another when broken.
