Pastry dough is made by using a pot of flour on a water source. The closest water sources to a bank in free-to-play are the water trough next to the furnace east of the Lumbridge Market, the sink north of Falador's west bank, and the well in Edgeville. Pots of flour can at times be difficult to buy at a low price, but leaving in an offer will usually be successful.
To make this method as efficient as possible, the "Destroy empty containers when cooking" gameplay option should be enabled. This can be done in the Inventory in General Settings section of the Gameplay Settings. This will allow the player to turn 27 pots of flour into dough per trip instead of the usual half-inventory of 14, at the cost of the pots being destroyed.
Withdraw 27 pots of flour from the bank and use one of the pots on the water source. Select pastry dough, and wait about 30 seconds for all of the flour to be converted. Return to the bank, use a bank preset to store the pastry dough and withraw another 27 pots of flour, and repeat. With this method about 80 trips can be done per hour, for 2,160 dough per hour. Sell the pastry dough on the Grand Exchange for as high a price as you can -- the guide price is not always an accurate indicator of what pastry dough is currently selling for.
