Have you done a lot of baking over the past year? I make over 300 little nut pies for Christmas and this pastry tamper makes things so much quicker and easier. Even if you only want to make a tray of little pastries or pies, you’ll be amazed at how easy it is.
Put a ball of pastry in the bottom of a muffin tin, press down with the pastry tamper and, voila, you have an even thickness pastry shell and no sticky fingers! One end fits into mini muffin tins, the other into the standard sized ones.
A Pastry Tamper Makes a Beautiful Gift:
Buy one for yourself or give one as a beautiful and thoughtful gift to someone you love.
My husband made one of these pastry tampers for me and I love it. I love the shape and feel and the beautiful colour and grain of the wood and it’s a pleasure to use.
Made From Recycled Wood:
These elegant, hand made, one of a kind pastry tampers are made from recycled or ethically sourced native timbers such as Rimu, Kauri, Totara and Puriri . Both ends are shaped to fit the tapered sides of a muffin tin.
They are silky smooth which is important for your hands and to ensure that the pastry doesn’t stick to the tamper. We finish them with a food safe, beeswax polish that we make ourselves from wax from our own hives. The polish nourishes and protects the wood and enhances the grain and colour of the wood.
