Old man’s attempt to make some dough (6)


I believe the answer is:


'some dough' is the definition.
(pastry is a kind of dough)

'old man's attempt' is the wordplay.
'old man's' becomes 'pas' (both can mean father).
'attempt' becomes 'try' (I've seen this before).

'to make' acts as a link.

(Other definitions for pastry that I've seen before include "Dough used in pie-cases" , "Cake - tart" , "Sweet baked dough" , "Dough made for pies, etc." , "See 7 Down" .)

I've seen this clue in The Telegraph.
