I found the video quite helpful. I have never had much success with pastry, found it diffcult to make and then the result wasn't good at all. It turned out very hard when cooked. Will look forward to a better result.

After 21 years of trying to make short crust pastry successfully, I watched the video on this page and bingo, it looked, felt and tasted like real pastry, thank you


1. Place half the weighed Flour Mix into a large bowl, with the butter, egg, water (and Parmesan cheese or caster sugar if adding).  Combine to a smooth paste with a fork. Work in the remaining weighed mix. Bring together into a ball.

2. Transfer dough to surface dusted with Flour Mix and knead for 1 minute. Wrap in cling film and chill for 20-30 minutes to ease rolling.

3. Knead again for 1 minute and roll out and use as desired.
