A very good pastry recipe. I make a batch of this and put it in fridge but you could put in freezer if you don't bake very often. You'll be surprised at how fantastically easy it is to make your own flaky pastry with this foolproof recipe!
3 people made this
280g (10 oz) plain flour
280g (10 oz) butter
100ml (3 1/2 fl oz) water
1 teaspoon salt
Method Prep:10min › Cook:25min › Ready in:35min
Put butter and flour in a bowl and mix with your hands then add water gradually until flour all forms together.( not too wet or too dry)
Give it a quick kneed on a floured surface and then break into say 3 pieces.
Each piece roll out one at a time then fold over then roll out and then fold over until you have like a block of butter or marg shape. Then place in cling film and put in fridge or place in a freezer bag and place in freezer.
Ensure you leave it in fridge for at least 20 mins before using.
