  • 200g plain flour, plus extra for dusting
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 100

Method

Make the shortcrust pastry following the method but omitting the sugar. Preheat the oven to 180°C/350°F/gas mark 4. Put the shallots on a roasting tray, dot with half the butter and sprinkle over the oil, Marsala and sugar.
