Short pastry is used for many recipes: sweet or savoury pies, tarta tatin, crostate, cookies.
Whatever I need it for, I never add sugar and always add a pinch of salt.
To roll the dough I use the Tupperware pastry mat for easy measurement and cleaning. You can find here my Amazon affiliate link.

- 1/2 cup butter at room temperature
- 1 1/2 cup flour
- 1 egg
- 2 tbsp water
- 1 pinch salt
- Mix all ingredients in the mixer.
- Wrap the dough into cling foil and let it rest in the fridge for at least 30 minutes so the butter re-solidifies.
- It is ready to use for pies or tarts
