Handling Pastry

How to best handle your pastry.

Pastry handles better when chilled than at room temperature - 30 to 40 minutes in the refrigerator before rolling is usually sufficient. You can keep pastry in the refrigerator for up to two or three days if it is wrapped well. However, if you do store it this long, let it sit at room temperature for 5 or 10 minutes before rolling, to allow the dough to become more pliable.
