How to make Savoury Pastry
- 100g / 4oz Butter - Chilled and cut in to pieces
- 200g / 7oz Plain Flour
- Pinch of Salt
- 3 - 4 Tablespoons of Chilled Water
Mix together the salt and flour in a mixing bowl and add the butter.
Use, either a spoon or fingertips to rub the butter in to the dry mixture until the whole mixture resembles breadcrumbs.
Make a well in the centre of the bowl by pushing the breadcrumb mixture around the edges and pour in the water and the beaten egg.
Combine the breadcrumbs and the water together using your hands or a wooden spoon.
Once your mixture is consistent throughout, wrap the pastry in clingfilm and refridgerate for at least 30 minutes.
Roll out your pastry on a floured surface and it is ready to use!
