Pastry - Short Crust

This is a super easy pastry recipe, that always turns out really well. A  great way to turn left over beef stew (that the kids weren't so keen on) into to a meal that the whole family loves, as well as making the leftovers go further.

3/4 cup (110g) plain flour
75g cold butter
1 tablespoon finely grated parmesan cheese 
1/4 teaspoon sweet paprika
1 egg yolk
3-4 teaspoon iced water, approx

In a food processor or thermomix, process the flour, butter, parmesan and paprika until it resembles large breadcrumbs.
Add the egg yolk, and while the motor is running, add enough iced water until the mixture just comes together.
Knead the pastry on a lightly floured surface until it is smooth. Wrap in clingfilm, and place it in the fridge for 30 minutes.
Roll and use as required, bake 180 C until golden.

Savvy Tip
# Don't have parmesan, works just as well with edam cheese.
