    Coasty's Note:

    This is a sweet pastry good for fruit pies or to use as a base for slices. This recipe is enough for a base and top for a 18cm pie dish or 20cm if you roll the top thinly

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Sift all dry ingredients. Place in the bowl of processor.
    2. 2
      Add chopped butter and whizz until it resembles breadcrumbs.
    3. 3
      Add the egg yolk and whizz until mixture comes together to form a dough.
    4. 4
      If needed add 1 tbsp iced water. This will depend on how dry your flour is, the weather (if it is humid and hot you probably won't need the extra water).
    5. 5
      Turn out onto a lightly floured bench and form into a smooth ball. Don't knead the pastry too much or it will produce a tough pastry.
    6. 6
      Wrap in cling wrap or place in a sealed container and rest in fridge for 1 hour.
    7. 7
      Divide into a 1/3 and 2/3 balls, the larger for the base. Roll out the larger ball to fit your dish fill and then roll out the smaller ball, cut out a small circle from centre of pastry to allow steam to escape and place gently over you pie filling. Crimp pie edge to seal.
    8. 8
      Brush the pastry with egg white and sprinkle with sugar just before baking. This gives a crunchy crust to the pie. Alternatively you can brush with a milk wash.
    9. 9
      With a fruit filling bake at 350C for 45-50 minutes.
    10. 10
      If you use the pastry for a slice base you can cover 2 slice tins.
