    Place the butter, icing sugar and salt in a bowl, mix using the whisk attachment on a mixer. Add the flour and water, combine quickly to form a soft dough. Flatten the dough a little, cover and chill for approx. 1 hr. Roll the dough into a circle (approx. 32 cm in diameter) between two sheets of baking paper. Remove the upper sheet, place the dough and baking paper in the tart tin. Prick the pastry base firmly with a fork.
