This is a really versatile pastry and it adapts perfectly to both savoury and sweet recipes.
- 100g butter
- 210g flour
- 5cl water
- Pinch of salt
I use my food mixer for this but you can do it by hand (its just a lot more work!)
- Chop butter in cubes
- Add flour and salt and mix well until you have a mixture that feels like breadcrumbs
- Slowly add the water until you get the texture required
- Allow the pastry to ‘relax’ for an hour or two before using
- If I am using this for a sweet desert pastry I add a desert-spoon of caster sugar to the mixture. You don’t have to of course, again it depends on your own preferences.
