Optional for Sweet Pastry

  • 50 g white sugar


  1. Place the flour and margarines into a large bowl and, using a knife or fork, mash the fats into the flour until you have fine breadcrumbs.

  2. Add the sugar and mix through if using.

  3. Add the egg to the mix and bring together to form a dough. If you need to, add a tiny bit of cold water or additional flour to bring it together into a dough. The flour blend you use along with the fat you use will affect this.

  4. Wrap in cling film and chill for 20 minutes before using.
