1 1/4 cups flour (a mixture of white and wholewheat works well)
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/3 cup butter
1/5 cup single cream
a pinch of salt
1-2 tbsp water

Mix the flour, baking powder and salt in a glass bowl. Add the butter, in small lumps, and the cream. Mix with a wooden spoon. Add a little water if necessary so that the dough has a consistence that seems right.
Lay the dough in a baking tray and put in the fridge for half an hour.
Set the oven to 450°F. Fill the pastry with the savory filling of your choice. When the oven is hot, cook for about 20 minutes.

Ideas for fillings will be posted later.
