Sieve 1 1/2 cups plain flour, 1 1/2 cups wholemeal flour and 1/4 teaspoon salt into a mixer. Add 100g reduced fat spread and process to a fine crumb. Alternatively, rub spread into flours and salt until mixture resembles fine breadcrumbs. Add lukewarm water until it can be moulded into a ball. Wrap in plastic wrap and leave to cool for 30 minutes in the fridge. Leave at room temperature for 10 minutes or warm a little in microwave before rolling out.
