Ingredients
Method
 
  • 8oz plain flour
  • 6oz butter
  • pinch salt
  • 5 fl oz ice cold water
Sift the flour and the salt into a bowl. Cut the butter into walnut size pieces and add to the flour. Add half of the water, and mix with a knife. Keep adding small amounts of water until a stiff dough is reached. The butter should still be in chunks at this stage.

Roll out the dough on a floured surface to form a rectangle. Fold into thirds, turn once clockwise and roll out into a rectangle. Fold into thirds, turn once clockwise and roll out into a rectangle. Repeat 2 - 3 more times until all the butter has been properly incorporated into the dough.

Chill for 30 mins, then use as puff pastry. This also freezes well.
