This pastry contains less butter than puff pastry and gives the same lovely flaky result. It is suitable for any dish where you might use puff pastry, except perhaps vol au vents. Flaky pastry may be kept wrapped in the fridge for 48 hours or it may be frozen.

500g (1lb 2oz) strong or plain flour (if using plain flour, more water may be needed)
Pinch of salt
325g (11½oz) butter, chilled
175ml (6fl oz) cold water (add a few ice cubes on a warm day)
