  1. 1

    Sift the flour and icing sugar into a large mixing bowl.

    For this step you'll need:

    • 200g Plain white flour
    • 2 tbsp Icing sugar or caster sugar
  2. 2

    Using your fingertips, rub the butter into the flour until the mixture resembles fine breadcrumbs. (or whiz the ingredients in a food processor)

    For this step you'll need:

    • 100g Butter (unsalted) chilled and cubed
    • 200g Plain white flour
  3. 3

    Make a well in the centre of the flour mixture, beat the egg yolk with 2 tbsp cold water and stir into the flourĀ until the mixture comes together.

    For this step you'll need:

    • 1 Egg yolk(s) (free range) large
  4. 4

    If the mixture is crumbly, add a drop more water to make a soft pliable dough.

    Push the pastry together and shape into a flat circle. Wrap in clingfilm and chill for half an hour in the fridge. This will be sufficient pastry to line a 18-20cm round tart tin.
