Why is it always assumed we know the basics - just in case you don't here are a few -
Pastry - When a recipe specifies a certain weight of pastry this refers to the amount of flour used in the pastry NOT the combined weight of all the ingredients. Therefore, 4oz. of pastry would be pastry made with 4oz of flour.
Dropping consistency - When a small amount of the mixture will fall from the spoon if gently shaken.
Soft Dropping Consistency - When a little of the mixture drops from the spoon by itself when the spoon is tipped.
Stiff Dropping Consistency - The spoon has to be shaken more vigourously before the mixture drops.
