Basic Pie Dough

Para versão Portuguesa clique aqui: Massa Quebrada

This dough can be used for savoury or sweet pies. It keeps well in the refrigerator for up to 3 days or in the freezer for a month.

300g flour
130g butter
70g water
½ tsp salt
½ tsp sugar

Cut the butter in small pieces and add to the flour, salt and sugar. Rub butter into flour between thumbs and fingertips lifting hands above the bowl to aerate mixture until it resembles bread crumbs. Add water and stir in quickly using one hand to gather it into a ball.

Place on a sheet of cling film, wrap and refrigerate for at least 15 minutes. With the help of a floured rolling pin, roll out dough and line a pie plate.
