Pâte Sucrée

This is one of the best french pâtisserie heritage! Well, in my chauvinist opinion… As you have to bake it seperatly and before garnishing it, it stays very crusty and you’ll get the perfect combo between crust and cream and fruits or whatever your garnment is!

  • It should be that color.
