FREEZE PASTRIES NOW - SERVE FRESH-BAKED IN SUMMER Everyone enjoys fresh fruit pastries during the summer months. But they take time to prepare. You'll be well ahead of the game, if you stock your freezer with these delicious desserts — either shells to be filled later with delicious berries or the traditional favorite, a two-crust pie with fruit filling, ready for the oven. Pastry freezes especially well and should be frozen before baking for finest flavor and texture. Make up double or triple the standard pastry recipe. It may be handled in several ways that save work and time on the day you wish to serve a pastry dessert. If time is short when making up the large batch, simply divide the pastry into balls, each the amount for a single crust Wrap in aluminum foil and freeze. These balls of pastry take only an hour at room temperature to soften sufficiently for rolling when needed. For easier, quicker use, roll pastry into tart or pie-sized circles and cut matching circles of foil. Stack on a cardboard circle, alternating foil and pastry circles to prevent sticking. Overwrap in foil to make a compact package, label and freeze. When needed, circles may be removed in the number required. They soften in 5 minutes. Tart shells can be formed by turning up foil and pastry % inch all around and pinching to make a firm edge. Bake them in the foil on a cookie sheet Large-size circles can be fitted into pie pans and used for shells or 2-crust pies. :*f% Karo* What a great one-dish ^heal for winter!
