    That's the latest one I've found too Snoop, so I used it this afternoon. I used Trex and Stork, but the Stork was in a tub - I'll try cubes cut from a block next time. If I can get it right it will be great - I'm tasked with making a lot of pastry!

    I'm afraid I use all butter in pastry. Not very healthy I guess. I make it in a food processor. Maybe I don't know what good pastry is supposed to be like!

    I'm sure it's lovely Snoop - I just stick to what my mum used to do. Lard is as good as Trex - cheaper and just as unhealthy

    I use slightly less than half fat to flour probably 8oz flour to 3oz fat, the fats half lard half block cooking marg. Waters added when the bowls removed from my Kenwood.
    This seems to work well for me.
