My Gran's Sour Cream Pastry

Four ingredients into a processor, some chilling time, and you have a top-notch pastry. I seldom buy puff pastry any more: this is halfway between puff and short pastry and it's a winner, for me. It's quickly made in the processor, and likes to be handled lightly and kept cold. One note of caution: it's meant for savory dishes. Personally I have never used it for tarts or desserts. Of course it could work, but it is not really meant for that. It is ideal as a crust on family-sized meat or chicken pies, or to use as a pastry for small pies meant for one person. It's one of my late, beloved Granny Grietjie's recipes. Handle it lightly, and it prefers being kept cool or cold until it goes into the oven. Please note, NO bad transfatty acids here. Honest fats, yes, and please do not use margarine! Roll it out fairly thinly (1/4 inch) and paint it with egg before baking, to get that golden colour. Don't leave out the salt: the pastry seems to benefit from having salt added.
