Pastries have existed for centuries now, and they're not merely a modern culinary invention. A pastry should have some form of dough in it, which is typically made up of flour and some kind of shortening ingredient. But a pastry also needs to be flavorful, hence it should have some kind of sweet taste or savory filling inside of it.
