      TM 5
      Please note that the TM5 mixing bowl has a larger capacity than the TM31 (capacity of 2.2 liters instead of 2.0 liters for TM 31). Recipes for the Thermomix TM5 may not be cooked with a Thermomix TM31 for safety reasons without adjusting the quantities. 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!

Recipe's preparation

    Sweet shortcrust pastry
  1. Place sugar into mixing bowl and mill 15 sec/speed 10.
  2. Add butter, flour, egg yolk and salt and mix 25-30 sec/speed 5, until crumbly.
  3. Transfer pastry onto a silicone bread mat or a lightly floured work surface and gently shape into a flat disc. Wrap in plastic wrap and place into refrigerator for a minimum of 30 minutes, until pastry is firm enough to roll. Clean and dry mixing bowl.
  4. Remove pastry from refrigerator and place between 2 sheets of baking paper. Roll out thinly (5 mm thickness) until large enough to cover a pie dish (24 cm) base and sides. Remove top layer of baking paper and transfer pastry into pie dish, pastry side down. Remove remaining baking paper and press pastry into dish, trimming any excess. Prick base all over with a fork and transfer into refrigerator until ready to use.
