  1. Place one third of the sifted flour, all of the butter and the water in a mixing bowl
  2. Cream with a fork or pastry blender until well mixed

  4. Turn out onto a lightly floured tabletop or board and knead thoroughly until smooth and silky
  5. Place in a plastic bag and leave in the refrigerator for 1/2 - 1 hour (Don't leave the dough in the fridge too long, as it will become hard and difficult to roll out)
