Work in the butter to a crumble stage, then add in the beaten egg and work it till the pastry is just holding together wrap it in a plastic bag and let it rest in the fridge for 1 hour.
  2. Roll out the pastry to a thickness of 3-4mm. Line the cake tin, cut off any excess and leave to rest for another hour. Then lay some greaseproof paper onto the paper and fill them with old dry beans and blind bake the pastry on 180C/gas 4 for 35-40 min or possibly till baked to a light brown colour.
