    Roll pastry between two sheets of baking paper to about 3mm thick, until large enough to line the base and side of a greased 23cm removable-base flan tin. Ease pastry into tin, press into sides. Rest in fridge for 15 minutes.

    Meanwhile, preheat oven to 180°C (160°C fan-forced). Place the tin on an oven tray. Line pastry with baking paper and fill with pastry weights, dried beans or rice. Bake for 15 minutes, remove weights and bake for 10 minutes. Cool slightly, then refrigerate until cold.
