The basic dough for tart is made by mixing low gluten flour, eggs and cream, fully kneading.
Due to different production methods and materials, it can be divided into basic pastry and sweet pastry. Without adding fine sugar, the cream cut into small pieces is kneaded into low gluten powder, which is basic pastry. With the addition of fine sugar, the sweet pastry is kneaded with soft cream.
No matter which one is baked in the tart ring moulds, it is used as the base of tart or pie cake.
