From a 1955 Edmonds book:

For Sweet Short Pastry, use the recipe for Short Pastry, adding 1 oz sugar and 1 egg yolk and water to mix.

Short Pastry

8 oz flour
1/4 tsp salt
4 oz butter, lard or margarine
1 tsp Edmonds Baking Powder
Cold water to mix

Sift flour & salt; rub in the fat with tips of fingers; add baking powder and mix to a very stiff dough with a little water (if too much water is used the pastry will be tough). Roll out very lightly and do not handle more than necessary.
Bake at 425 degrees Fahrenheit

Hope this is what you want.
