Sweet Pastry

I've used that many sweet pastry recipes over the years and there's 1 million and 1 ways to make sweet pastry but this is the recipe I find always results in a nice, not too crumbly, not too sweet pastry and it's not that hard to make.

You will need...
200gr unsalted butter, slightly chilled
100gr caster sugar
360gr plain flour
1 large egg
1/4 tsp vanilla bean

1. Using an electric mixer, beat the butter, sugar and vanilla together until just combined.
2. Add your egg and mix quickly
3. Sift your flour and fold into butter. As soon as its incorporated, mould into a flat square, wrap in cling wrap and place in the fridge to rest for 1 hour.
4. Remove from fridge, let sit for 10 minutes to slightly soften, then roll between two pieces of baking paper and use as desired.
