- Sift flour, salt, and baking powder together in a bowl, and rub in butter until the flour is the consistency of coarse crumbs.
- Mix in water.
- Roll dough out on a floured board until about 1/4 inch thick.

This was absolutely terrific! The consistency of the dough was perfect and I loved all of the flavors - you could actually fill this with all kinds of things and I think it would be great. Thanks for the keeper! :)
May the inhabitants of Cornwall not judge me too harshly. This was prepared WITHOUT the meat and in its place I added zucchini, parsnip and leek. For added flavor I added two cloves of roasted garlic to compensate for the meat. We thought the pastry itself was delicious, not doughy or tough. Next time I plan on making the recipe using the rump roast. Easy directions to follow but I would suggest allowing the filling mixture to cool before trying to stuff the pasty or the filling will melt the dough. I threw away my other pasty recipe. This one is much better anyway. Thanks for sharing! CG
Delicious - a bit messy, but well worth the cleanup! We used to get the bst pasties in the world at a little place where we grew up - these bring back those memories. Thanks.
