Lighter Pastry Dough


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.

  1. This sounds like an excellent dough, and I can just see it filled with apricots, or marmalade, or berry fillings, or even artichoke and spinach filling.
