shortcrust pastry

this pastry makes a beautifully short and delicate pastry ideal for tartlet cases. miss k made a pile of the pastry cases yesterday which she filled with passionfruit butter...and me? i brought a jar of passionfruit butter and a box of the pastry cases to the concert i went to at the domain. very, very yummy. the concert wasn't bad, either.

500g plain flour
2 egg yolks
1 whole egg
250g butter
1 tablespoon water

preheat oven to 150ÂșC. lightly grease a nonstick tart tin and set aside.
place all ingredients into thermomix bowl and mix for 30-60 seconds on speed 7. pinch off small portions of dough and roll into balls about the size of a unshelled macadamia nut. use the (floured) measuring cup to press the dough flat into discs. place these discs to line each tart cavity.
bake until golden.
