Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F
To make the pastry, sift the flour and salt then rub in the butter until
the mixture resembles bread crumbs.
Add the water and form into a ball. Roll out the pastry until large enough
to line an 8 inch pan.
Place a piece of foil over the pastry to cover the base and sides.
Bake for 10 minutes, then remove the foil and bake for a further 5 minutes.
Remove from the oven to cool.
