This is a superb traditional pastry for tarts. It’s best to make the pastry a day before you need it.

Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
125g sugar
1 large egg
1/2 see method for ingredients
1/2 vanilla pod seeds
250g plain flour
125g butter, cut into small cubes

Method

  1. Place the sugar, egg and vanilla seeds in a small bowl and whisk well.
  2. Place the flour in the bowl of an electric beater. Add the cubed butter and beat until crumbly. Beat in the egg mixture until the pastry is well combined.
  3. Alternatively, to make the pastry by hand, place the flour in a bowl and use your fingertips to rub in the butter until the mixture resembles breadcrumbs. Make a well in the centre. Add the egg mixture and use your fingertips to mix into a soft dough. If the pastry is too dry, add 1 tablespoon water or milk.
  4. Form the pastry into a ball using your hands. Flatten it slightly, wrap in plastic wrap or foil and refrigerate for at least 1 hour before using.
