Making pastry from scratch can be a little tricky, but it's worth the effort for the delicious results! Here's a basic recipe for making pastry:


  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 cup unsalted butter, chilled and cut into small pieces
  • 6-8 tbsp ice water


  1. In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the flour and salt until well combined.

  2. Add the butter to the bowl and use a pastry cutter or your hands to cut it into the flour mixture until it resembles coarse crumbs.

  3. Add the ice water, one tablespoon at a time, and mix until the dough starts to come together. Be careful not to overmix or the pastry will be tough.

  4. Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured surface and knead it a few times until it comes together in a smooth ball.

  5. Flatten the dough into a disk, wrap it in plastic wrap, and refrigerate it for at least 30 minutes before using.

  6. When you're ready to use the pastry, roll it out on a lightly floured surface to the desired thickness and shape.

  7. Use the pastry to line a pie dish or cut it into shapes for a tart or other pastry-based dish.


  • Keep the butter and water as cold as possible to help the pastry stay flaky.
  • Don't overwork the pastry or it will become tough and dry.
  • If the dough is too dry, add a little more ice water. If it's too wet, add a little more flour.
