1 Sift dry ingredients into a large, chilled bowl. Add knobs of spread and use fingertips to gently rub spread in until mixture resembles fine breadcrumbs. Form a well in the centre. Add egg then gradually add water. Bring mixture together and shape into a ball. If dough is dry, add extra water.
2 Knead dough for 3 minutes or until smooth and well combined.
3 Roll out between 2 sheets baking paper until large enough to suit your requirements. Set aside. This pastry can be chilled for several hours and rolled out when required.
This pastry is useful for savoury cooking. To make a sweet version, add 1 tablespoon sugar to dry ingredients.
