Pastry Cups (Can Substitute Frozen Puff Pastry)
- 2 cups all purpose flour
- 4 ounces, 1 stick of butter, cut up into small pieces and frozen (JB trick)
- 1 teaspoon salt
- A pinch of 5 spice powder
- 2 eggs lightly beaten with 1 tablespoon ice water
In a food processor with the blade, add flour, butter, salt and 5-spice. Pulse until butter ends up in very small pieces. Add the egg mixture and pulse until a ball is formed. If ball is too dry, add a little water or, if too wet, add a little flour. In either case, pulse to incorporate. Wrap ball in plastic and refrigerate for 1 hour. Roll out dough to 1/4-inch thick and dock dough (make small holes). Cut out circles or squares and place on an upside down muffin pan. Place a sheet of parchment on top then weigh down with a sheet tray. Bake at 425 degrees for 18 to 20 minutes or until golden brown.
