Now this size of pastry ring that I've chosen to use today is an 8 inch ring. The recipe of dough that I'm giving you is enough for two 10 inch rings. I'm making my tart today For only five people and so I've chosen to use this a smaller ring. Using the end of rolling pin you want to roll it over the ring which is naturally gonna cut it. I'm holding it at an angle, and this is better than using a knife because when you use a knife, you tend to cut the dough and it cuts off inside the ring as opposed to the outside of the ring. [BLANK_AUDIO] And then quickly, just with the Flat part of your thumb. Make sure that that crust adheres to the ring. [MUSIC]
