If you enjoy cooking take a minute to look at http://www.gourmetbritain.com/cookery-wine-schools/32475/simon-scrutton-cookery-classes/ - learn how to make top-class dishes from beginners upwards.
For 1 medium or 4 small individual tarts:
100gr/3 oz Plain Flour
100gr/3 oz freshly-grated Parmesan
100gr/3 oz Butter
1 medium Egg
Perhaps a few drops of very cold water
Equipment: a Food Processor
1. Combine the flour, butter and Parmesan in a food processor and process quickly to blend.
2. Add the egg and whiz again. You are aiming for a spinning ball of pastry, without any stickiness - you may have to add a tablespoon of very cold water to achieve this.
3. Remove the pastry and chill it for at least an hour in the fridge before using.
