Process

Step 1

To make the pastry, combine the flour and salt in a large bowl. Using your hands, rub the butter into the flour to form a rough crumb.

Step 2

Add in the water in 1 tbsp at a time until it comes together. Tip out onto a floured surface and knead for 5-10 mins until it becomes smooth.

Step 3

Try not to add too much extra flour to the mixture. Cover dough and then let it rest in the fridge for at least 30 mins. The pastry can be made the day before, but remove from fridge 1 hr before to allow it to become malleable.
