Homemade Pasta Brisée (Pie Dough)

Pasta brisee

I think everyone knows how to make home Pasta Brisée (Pie Dough) because it is one of the easiest recipes to prepare, and this recipe does not use eggs. Today, having nothing prepared for lunch, I immediately thought of preparing a delicious savory pie so everyone was happy to eat something different than usual.

In all Italian families, lunch starts strictly with a pasta dish that can be seasoned in different ways, such as tomato sauce, carbonara, pesto, shrimp, etc.

So, I decided not to cook pasta but to make a nice savory pie to change things.

savory pie can also be made with puff pastry, but I couldn’t find it in the freezer.

So, instead, I thought about making “Pasta Brisée,” a basic dough typical of French cuisine. It is often used to prepare desserts and cover savory pies.

If you are a true cooking enthusiast, you cannot miss this recipe, which will be helpful on many occasions.

Although the recipe is French, it is widely used in Italy. Just think of the Italian Easter savory pie made with “Pasta Brisée.”

Depending on the recipe you intend to prepare, the Pasta Brisée can be flavored with the addition of herbs, spices, cocoa, or liqueurs.

It can be stored in the refrigerator, wrapped in cling film, for three days.
