Place the flour and salt in a food processor. Add the butter and whiz for about 10 seconds until the mixture resembles coarse breadcrumbs. Tip into a mixing bowl. Add 4 tablespoons of water and stir the mixture with a butter knife until the dough just comes together. If it seems too dry, add another 1-2 tablespoons of water.

        I think there is some typing error at the first recipe, it should be 250 grams of plain flour, not plain water. There is no indication of flour in there.
