- STEP 1
Preheat the oven to 200C. Line a baking tray with grease proof/ non-stick paper.
- STEP 2
Rub the the butter cubes, flour and salt together until the mixture resembles breadcrumbs. To get the large pieces of butter up to the surface, shake the bowl.
- STEP 3
Gradually add the water until the mixture resembles a soft dough. If it is too stiff after the 200ml add a little more.
- STEP 4
Knead for a minute or two (just gently) until all the dough is fully combined and the salt is evenly dispersed.
- STEP 5
Turn out onto a floured surface and shape into a large, thick disk, roughly 16-18cm wide, but it varies. Make 8 deep slashes across the top in a compass shape. Bake for 30 minutes. After it has turned crusty, turn the oven off and leave until ready to eat.
