3 cups Self-Rising Flour

6 oz. unsalted Butter                                 

3 Tbsps. Ice Water

½ tsp. Salt


  1. Combine the Flour and Salt.   Use a pastry blender to cut the Butter into the Flour.
  2. Add the Water and mix to a stiff dough.
  3. Roll the dough out on a floured pastry board.
  4. Fold the Pastry by bringing the side edges to the middle, and then the top and bottom edges to the middle.
  5. Press the edges together so that an envelope is formed, keeping the air inside.
  6. Place in the freezer for 10 minutes, then repeat the folding and rolling process.
  7. Chill again, then roll out and use as desired.
  8. Bake in a 400 degree oven for 15-20 minutes.


Yield – enough for 1 large pie


NOTE:   This is a short cut version of puff pastry and should be used as soon after making as possible.  It is good for meat and poultry pies.
