Perfect pastry recipe – short crust

  • 500g flour
  • 250g soft butter
  • pinch salt
  • 20 ml vegetable oil
  • 50 ml water
  1. Mix flour, butter and salt together for 8 minutes until crumble texture achieved – you can also alternatively use a food processor.
  2. Then bind together with water – mix well until pastry is formed. Tip – you want to achieve a pastry that is soft and easy to roll add a little more water than necessary,  the more you mix the more the flour will soak up the fluids.
  3. Take pastry out of bowl, cover with cling film and place in the fridge for 30 minutes
  4. Always use flour when rolling your pastry out. A little flour will make sure that it doesn’t stick to rolling pin and will give you the ability to easily roll then cut to shape required.
