Short crust pastry/ sweet pastry

Course Desserts


  • 1 Cup Self raising flour
  • 1 Cup Plain flour
  • 125 Grams Cold butter. Chopped
  • 2 Tablespoons Icing sugar
  • 1 Large Egg
  • 1/3 Cup Water or Milk Cold


  • I blitzed butter and flour quickly in a food processor then poured into a bowl, add icing sugar. Can mix with fingers to a fine breadcrumb.
  • Beat egg and milk together. Make a well in the centre of the flour and pour in the eggy milk, stirring with a knife. Add a little more milk if need be to pull it all together, give all a hand squeeze.
  • Wrap pastry into some cling film and pop in fridge for use this day. You can also portion, warp firmly in cling wrap and pop into a labelled bag to freeze for use another day.
