Flaky Pastry Dough

2 cups all-purpose flour, plus extra for dusting

1 teaspoon fine salt

1 1/4 sticks unsalted butter, chopped into pieces

1 egg, beaten

1 tablespoon milk

Sift the flour and salt into a large mixing bowl. Using your fingertips, rub in the butter until the mixture resembles fine bread crumbs.

Make a well in the center and add the rest of the ingredients. Again using your fingertips, mix together to make a smooth dough.

Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured surface and lightly knead two or three times. Cover with plastic wrap and chill for at least 30 minutes before using. Makes enough for a 6-serving pie.
