How to Make a Medieval Pastry Dough- Game of Thrones Food Recipes


Makes enough for eight 4-inch tarts, two 9-inch tarts, or one 9-inch double-crust pie

Preparation Time: 10 minutes

A quick and easy recipe for shortcrust pastry. You can make it by hand or in a food processor.

This recipe makes dough that is buttery and rich, and just perfect for both sweet and savory dishes.


Pinch of saffron
½ cup water
½ cup (1 stick) unsalted butter
3 cups flour
2 egg yolks, slightly beaten


1) Dissolve the saffron in the water.

2) Meanwhile, rub the butter into the flour with your fingers until there are only crumb-size pieces of butter left, then add the egg yolks and the saffron water.

3) Stir until entirely incorporated, adding more water very gradually if needed, until everything just sticks together.

4) To pre-bake a shell, line a pan with dough, rolled very thin—to between 1/8 and 1/4 inch. Using a fork, poke holes all over the bottom of the pastry shell, or use pie weights or dried beans to prevent bubbling.

5) Bake for around 10 minutes at 350°F. Don’t let the pastry start to brown! Remove it from the oven and fill as the recipe indicates.

6) Dough can be chilled up to 3 days.
