I make it up with butter, an egg, and 3 tablespoons water (the packet says four, but it doesn't mention an egg). This gets whizzed about in the processor until it's formed itself into a lump. The lump is indeed squishy and I wouldn't fancy trying to roll it out, not even between sheets of baking paper. At this point I take a tinfoil pie plate and slap the lump in the middle; then mould it so that it's fairly even and looks OK at the edges. Then I put it in the fridge for at least half an hour; then straight into the oven. Result - perfectly OK base for quiche, bakewell tart, or what you will. Also you don't waste any.
I haven't yet tried making a two-crust pie, but I hope this helps if you're struggling with a squidgy pastry base.
Thank you Mrs Crimble!
Just add water and this mix makes a very acceptable pastry. It is quite tricky to work - if you get it too wet it turns into a sticky mushy mess - but even if you get it just right, it doesn't hold together like normal pastry: it's best used in pie tins or dishes and it needs to be formed quite thick. Consequently, the finished pie is rather stodgy and a lot of pastry gets left on the side of the plate.
It has an unassuming but somewhat distinctive taste - slightly salty - and texture - slightly gritty. Failings aside, it does the job well enough.
