Quick and easy! I use my kitchenaid for this and its done in minutes. You can also use a food processor or you best tools, your hands!
200g Plain flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
100g Cold Butter
1 teaspoon Lemon juice
1 teaspoon Iced Water
Note: 2 Tablespoons icing sugar if making sweet pastry
Place flour, salt, (icing sugar if making sweet dough) and diced cold butter to a bowl and mix until it resembles breadcrumbs. Add the egg, lemon juice and iced water and mix till a smooth dough forms. Knead for about 3mins and roll into a ball. Wrap in clingfilm and chill for 30mins prior to using.
