You want the flaky pastry! page 32.
Margaret's flaky pastry!
This is my all time favourite & so easy.
3/4 cups flour
1/2 tsp BP
60g cold butter
1/4 cup milk
1/2 tsp wine vinegar or 1 tsp lemon juice
I just throw the butter & flour in the food processor but leave the butter a little bit chunky & add the rest of the ingredients & whizz.
If you want the short pastry (also page 32)
I'll put it up for you .I don't think it's as good as this one.but has less fat.
