(Quick guide for this pastry is twice as much flour as butter.)
350g of self-raising flour175 g of butter in small piecesand a good pinch of salt.
Rub all the ingredients together.
What I do is pulse them in the food processor until crumb like, then take them out and knead them into a firm dough with about 4 to 5 tablespoons of cold water.
Wrap and chill while you put the filling together.
