Our Shortcrust Pastry Patties are somewhat thicker than flaky pastry but crumblier. Shortcrust pastry is ideal for foods with moist fillings because it doesn’t absorb liquids. Plain shortcrust pastry is typically used for savoury fillings. But it’s also a versatile option that may be used in desserts like tarts. Because there are no raising agents in shortcrust pastry, it does not rise, flake, or puff up.
Jamaican Shortcrust Pastry Patties
Shortcrust pastry is the more authentic of the two. However, we have a great selection of Jamaican Flaky Patties in case you want a change. Both types of our pastry (Flaky and Shortcrust) contain just plain wheat flour, water, vegetable margarine and vegetable shortening. As well as colourings and preservatives. We do not use vegetable oil, suet, or any animal fats. Here at Island Delight, our vegetable Jamaican Patties are suitable for vegans and our Halal patties allow us to accommodate a wider market. In addition, with our range of flavours, we’re sure you can find something to your taste. Take a look at our Shortcrust Pastry Patties below:
