These crusts are the base for most pastry and pie recipes. The crust is first baked and then the filling is added, to make various pies.
While making crusts, take care not to knead the dough too much as the crumbly texture will be lost and you will end-up with a bread-like texture.
We have used this crust to make Vegetable Stew On A Shortcrust Pastry and Mixed Vegetable Pie .
- Sieve the flour. Add the butter and salt and rub in with your fingertips.
- Add about 1 tbsp of ice-cold water to make a dough
- Roll out the dough to about 3 mm. Thickness.
- Arrange the rolled out dough in a greased 150 mm. (6”) diameter pie dish.

- Bake in a pre-heated oven at 200°c (400°f) for 15 minutes.
