Simple pastry! Rich and luscious, makes any pie to die for! My favourite pastry for all pies


  1. Chop the cold butter and put it in a food processor bowl with the flour. Pulse this mixture until the butter resembles chunks the size of olives.

  4. Roll into the desired shape.
  5. Rest again in the fridge.
