DIRECTIONS
  1. If you have a favourite sweet shortcrust recipe, then you can certainly use that instead. I’ve tried a few and though this pastry is a B*TCH to work with, it really has no comparison in terms of withstanding moist fillings.
RECIPE BACKSTORY
This is a wonderful dessert to serve when you want something sweet but not too heavy, and it's a great way to take advantage of fresh seasonal fruit! More about this recipe, here: http://www.insanitytheory.net/kitchenwench/2008/03/20/for-the-love-of-a-fresh-fruit-flan/
