Short Crust Pastry – 2

Did you think I was done? This recipe is suitable for individual servings for quiche, tarts, etc. as it holds firm and is not as crumbly as the others.


1 3/4 cups plain flour

100g cold unsalted butter, cut into small pieces

1/2 teaspoon salt

1 egg

1 tablespoon cold water


  • Mix flour and salt in a mixing bowl.
  • Add in the butter and rub with your fingers till all the butter is incorporated (mixed) with the flour.
  • Add the cold water and mix till it comes together into a ball.
  • Add the whole egg and mix/knead lightly. Add more flour if the dough is still sticky.
  • You can use the pastry immediately or chill it in the fridge for 20 minutes if you prefer.
