Method
1. Preheat oven 200 C/400 F/Gas 6. Lightly grease two or three flat baking trays.
2. Sieve the flour, salt and pepper into a large bowl. Coarsely rub in the butter. Add sufficient cold water to mix to a soft dough.
3. Turn onto a floured board and gently knead. Roll into an oblong. Fold in a third of the pastry then fold it again over itself so it is a third of the size. Toll into an oblong again a repeat three times.
4. Roll out thinly and cut into about 6 x 13cms/6" rounds. A side plate is ideal for this!
