Process

Step 1

In a large bowl combine the flour and caster sugar. Use your hands to rub the butter into the mixture to form a fine crumb.

Step 2

Mix in the egg yolk, then add in 1 tbsp of cold water at a time until the dough starts to come together. Tip the dough onto a floured bench and knead for 5-7 mins or until the dough starts to come together in a smooth ball. Cover and rest in the fridge for 30 mins.

Step 3

Preheat the oven to 170C. Roll out the pastry on a floured surface then carefully place it in a loose base tart tin. Press into the tin and then use a sharp knife to trim the pastry.

Step 4

Cover the pastry with a sheet of baking paper and baking weights or rice. Bake in the oven for 10-15 mins until a light golden colour.
