Handmade Buttery Savoury Pastry

Buttery Savoury Pastry

Ingredients:

130 gram flour
1/4 tsp. salt
65 gram cold butter, cubed
2 tbsp. cold water
1 egg, beaten

Flour for dusting

Method:

  1. In food processor combine flour, butter, salt and water. Pulse until a breadcrumb texture is reached.
  2. Add beaten egg and pulse until dough ball is starting to form.
  3. Turn out onto a lightly floured bench and knead until pastry has formed a nice ball, flatten wrap in glad wrap and rest in the fridge for 30 minutes before rolling.
  4. When ready to use lightly flour your bench and rolling-pin to avoid sticking.
  5. This pastry is perfect for pies, it is crunchy and slightly flakey and the egg adds richness to it.

I usually when making pies to a double batch but make it separately because you want the bottom of the pie slightly thicker than the lid.
