    What is Pate Brisee Fine?

    • Hello timlanessastewart,

      The best definition I can find is:

      “You may also see pate brisee referred to as “pate brisee fine.” In French, “pate brisee” literally means “short dough,” a reference to the fact that it contains a very high ratio of fat to flour. It is this ratio which gives pate brisee its unique properties, turning it crumbly, flaky, and incredibly rich. This ratio also makes pate brisee easy to work with, because it makes this dough more forgiving than other pie and tart doughs.”
