100g plain white flour
a large pinch of mustard powder
50g margarine
50g mature cheddar cheese
1 x 15ml spoon cold water

1 egg

Items needed - baking tray, sieve, mixing bowl, 1x5ml spoon, 1x15ml spoon, rolling pin, palette knife, grater, pastry brush and cooling rack.

Preheat oven to gas mark 6/200C

Lightly grease a baking tray. Or use baking parchment.

Sift the flour and mustard powder into a mixing bowl.

Add the margarine to the flour.

Using your fingertips, rub the margarine into the flour until it resembles fine breadcrumbs.

Grate the cheese and stir into the flour mixture.

Using your hands, mix to form a smooth dough, adding a little cold water to help bind the mixture together.

Knead lightly until smooth.
