    This is an easy shortcrust pastry dough that can be used with any savoury pie, flan or tart. Use straight away or store in the fridge until needed.

    Ingredients
    Serves: 4 

    • 2 cups (250g) plain flour
    • 1 pinch salt, to taste
    • 125g butter, cut into pieces
    • 1 egg yolk
    • 50ml water or more if needed

    Directions
    Preparation:15min  ›  Ready in:15min 

    1. In a food processor or a large bowl mix the flour with the salt and butter. Blend until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs and there are no chunks of butter left.
    2. Add the egg yolk and just enough water to make a non-sticky dough.
    3. Wrap and refrigerate if you have time or use immediately.

    I ended up using closer to 70ml of water. Works best if not refrigerated. Will be making this instead of buying pastry from now on. - 18 Jun 2016
