Add to food processor while machine's running. Process until dough holds together. Wrap in plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 1 hour. BRITTLE: Place sugar in a saucepan and gently melt over low heat. Remove from heat and stir in nuts. Pour onto a baking sheet and leave to harden to a brittle. Crack brittle into smaller pieces with a mallet. Roll pastry dough out to a round, 23 cm in diameter and 2 cm thick, or cut into a sun shape. Refrigerate until firm. Heat oven to 200 ºC.
