Jus-Rol is expanding its frozen pastry shapes range with the launch of a new shortcrust oval. The company is promoting the new shape as a convenient way to top pies, but it can also be used as an individual pie base.

The new shapes are available in 14cm x 11cm (sized to fit a Mason Cash No. 1 oval dish or similar) or can be rolled out further to fit a Mason Cash No. 2 oval dish (16cm x 11cm) and can be cooked from frozen if required.

"Since the launch last summer, we’ve had a fantastic response to our puff pastry shapes, recipes and usage tips and are delighted to be expanding the range with the introduction of a shortcrust variety. The shapes save valuable preparation time, as well as guaranteeing perfect pastry results on demand," commented John McKears, foodservice sales manager for Jus-Rol.

The shortcrust ovals come in cases of 48.
