So place the butter and flour together, and rub it together, until it becomes sand.
Place the eggs and sugar together and whisk until the sugar is disolved. Add to ‘sand mix, then bind together.
Do not over work the dough but mix enough that the dough is smooth. Let dough rest for 20 minutes before rolling.
Roll out to a thin base, then using the rolling pin, gently roll the edge of the pastry over the pin to lift it onto your baking tray. Trim using a knife and blind bake
