    Turn pastry onto a lightly floured surface. Knead gently until smooth. Shape into a 2cm-thick disc. Wrap in baking paper. Refrigerate for 20 to 30 minutes or until firm enough to roll out.

    Preheat oven to 200°C/180°C fan-forced. Lightly grease a 3cm-deep, 20cm (base), loose-based round flan tin. Roll pastry between 2 sheets of baking paper until 4mm thick. Line tin with pastry. Trim and reserve excess pastry. Refrigerate tin, covered, for 30 minutes.
