Basic sweet pastry

Been using this recipe from good food for all my recent pies etc. dead easy, no idea why I’ve always been so scared of pastry!

225g plain flour
110g butter
80g caster sugar
1 egg (I’ve used milk instead when I halved the recipe/ didn’t have eggs)

Rehab in the flour and butter
Stir in the sugar
Mix in egg/ milk until forms a good dough
It’s often best to leave in fridge for a bit before using if you have time
