Put the sifted flour, salt, chilli flakes & cheese into the bowl of a food processor & pulse a few times.  Add the diced butter & run machine until mix resembles coarse sand.  Add the egg & yolk & blitz again until a firm dough forms

Turn onto a floured surface & shape into a log approx 50cm long.  Cut into 3, then wrap in greaseproof & chill for 30 mins.  The dough can be kept well wrapped in the fridge for 3 days or frozen for up to a month.

Heat the oven to 200°F/400°F/Gas 6.
