½ cup Semi-salted butter 100 ml

and add to the flour mixture. Cut the butter into the flour mixture with pastry blender or
two knives of fingers until the mixture looks like coarse sand. Add the egg yolk and lemon
juice to the butter flour mixture and mix together with a fork until the mixture begins to
hold together. Refrigerate for 10 minutes.Empty chilled pastry onto a piece of waxed
paper large enough to accommodate a 12 inch circle of rolled pastry. Cover with another
piece of waxed paper and roll out. Remove the top waxed paper and turn the pastry into a flan
pan. Slowly remove the waxed paper and fit the pastry into the pan.
Cover the pastry with a piece of parchment paper and weight it down with pastry beads.

8 minutes.
