Silicone Pastry Brush and Grill BBQ Basting Brush Set - I don't think I would use this with a barbecue since the handles are so short, but they are perfect to use for pastry. You don't have to worry about the bristles falling out like you do with traditional pastry brushes.
If you're making a savory tart, flaky phyllo dough is a brilliant alternative to a traditional pie crust. The only catch is, most recipes have you brush each layer with melted butter. Using melted coconut oil works just as well; and, in this case, tastes even better. That's because it beautifully complements this tart's toppings, which are much lighter than your typical bacon, ham or cheese.
Whether brushing a beaten egg or milk glaze over a pastry, the silicone pastry brush is an ideal choice for delicate recipes.
