Making your own light, crumbly pastry is as easy as pie, writes Eva King. You can master the art of tarts if you just keep your cool and follow these simple instructions. This method describes how to prepare a tart case before adding a filling, but you could also use this pastry for pies and pasties. The uncooked pastry can be refrigerated for up to 3 days, or frozen for up to a month.
Makes: enough for a 20-23cm diameter tart tin
