With this delicious recipe, you will learn how to create the perfect shortcrust pastry. We'll teach you how to achieve crumbly and soft handmade pastry, filled with an indulgent custard cream.Add a crunchy flair to your creation by adding pinenuts (according to the original recipe) or you can use your favourite kind of nuts.
