Processor Pastry

Im always in a hurry these days so I find this pastry great for all sorts of recipes you can add sugar and make lovely little tart cases and I fill them with heaps of filling lemon meringue cheese cake
1 Cup flour
1/4 teas Salt
1/4 Cup Butter
1/4 Cup Cold water

Add butter and salt to flour mixture in the food Processor
Pulsing 5 or 6 times or until mixture resembles coarse
Breadcrumbs With processor running, slowly add water (1tablespoon at a time) until the dough begins to form a ball and leaves sides of bowl.
Cover and refrigerate 30 minutes roll dough on a lightly floured surface.
If you want to make it a bit more flaky (not sweet pastry)add a bit of butter in blobs after you roll it out and fold it over a couple of times adding tiny blobs dont over do it place in fridge another 10 minutes Roll and use for what ever you want.
