Ingredients to make about 300 grams

  • 200g / 7 oz flour
  • A pinch of salt
  • 110g / 4 oz butter, cubed
  • 2-3 tablespoons very cold water
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten
  1. Put the flour, butter and salt in the bowl of a food processor.
  2. Using only the pulse setting, pulse until the mixture resembles breadcrumbs and avoid over mixing, if you can.
  3. Through the funnel on the top of the processor, slowly add the water a tablespoon at a time until the mixture comes together in a ball.
  4. Pour the dough onto a clean, lightly floured surface.
  5. Lightly grease a baking pan and form the dough around the sides and the bottom of the pan.
  6. Chill the dough base for half an hour in the freezer to harden it. When you are ready, remove the dough from the freezer and prick the base with a fork in several places.
  7. Cut a piece of parchment paper large enough to cover the base of pasta including the edges.
  8. Lightly scrunch the paper and place over the dough base then cover the base with dried beans, rice or lentils. This will help the dough to keep its shape.
  9. Remove the beans along with liner, then brush the base of the pastry all over with the egg.
  10. Place back in the oven for another 3 – 5 minutes or until it begins to brown a bit.
