Pastry Baking

Pastries are filled baked goods made with a dough that has a high fat content. Pastry comes from the word “paste.” The paste was made from a flour, a fat, and a liquid (sometimes an egg). Pastries often are filled with deliciously flavored cremes or fruit fillings, and in some cases may be filled with meat, cheese, vegetables, and savory fillings. These can be large enough for a lunch or smaller for nice appetizers. These appetizers are often called pastry pockets. Unlike a pie, a pastry is usually an individual serving. Thus, pastries are perfect for treats, dessert trays, or tea parties. Good desserts and pastries are always in demand!
