Risk of scalding by spraying of hot liquids: Do not exceed the maximum filling quantity and observe the filling level markings of the mixing bowl!

    Smile Mouthwateringly delicious. Can't get over how yummy it was. I made it into a huge tart.
    My first ever go at short crust pastry, not a great hit in terms of presentation but the taste sensation made up for it!
