Ready made pastry - which is what?

"Pâte sablée" is slightly sweetened, and the thing to use for, say, a fruit tart.

Personally I don't find that the French version of "pâte feuilletée" (flaky pastry) puffs up nearly as much as our puff pastry.  I sometimes freeze packs of Saxby's puff pastry and take it over with me.

It can be a nuisance to find your French pastry has already been rolled into a nice circle when you buy it.  I have bought it to make a dish of pork fillet "en croute" and found the French pastry shape much more wasteful of pastry than rectangular or square.

That's an unkind thing to call Toodlepips!  She only said that she didn't do much pastry baking [:D]
