  • 2
    Cut in shortening and butter until only pebble sized pieces remain and buttery in colour.
  • 3
    Add tofu to liquid measure and top it up to one cup with milk. Mix together with fork and add to flour/butter mixture. Stir until just combined with fork.

    Turn out onto floured surface and gently fold over a few times until it comes together. It will be soft and slightly tacky.

    Roll out by hand by gently patting it down until it is uniformly 1-inch thick. Note that the less you mess around with the dough, the more tender they will be.

    Bake for 15 minutes, until tops are golden brown. Let cool on a wire rack.
