How to Store Unused Pastry

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 & pop it in the freezer. We always use 2 layers of cling film just to make sure nothing can get through. 

Simple.
