Shortcrust (postej låg)

This is an unsweetened shortcrust that works very well for meat pies such as my game pie and my pork and chicken pie. You need the shortcrust as the lid of the pie and my piecrust recipe for the sides. You can also just use an oven proof dish and add a short crust lid to it. Can be frozen.
