  1. Step 1

  2. Step 2

    Add the butter then either using a pastry cutter, large-tined fork or a food processor on pulse setting, cut the chilled butter into the flour until it resembles coarse sand. Do not worry if a few pea-sized pieces of butter remain as this will add a buttery tinge to the finished pastry.
  3. Step 3

    Sprinkle the water a tablespoon at a time over the mixture and mix lightly until the pastry starts to clump together.
  4. Step 4

    Once this happens, scoop the pastry into a ball and wrap in plastic wrap and chill in the refrigerator for anything from 30 minutes to a couple of hours. You can also make the pastry the day before.
