How to Store Unused Pastry

Storage

You've made your pastry goods but you have some left over...wondering what to do with your unused pastry? It seems a shame to just throw it away so why not keep it for a later date? Both shortcrust and puff pastry freeze really well. 

They will last for 1-2 days in the fridge (if they are well covered in clingfilm), but if you aren't going to use it in that time, wrap the pastry tightly in cling film and pop it in the freezer. We always use 2 layers of cling film just to make sure nothing can get through. 

Simple.
