Ingredients

1 cup A-P Flour
1/4 Cup sweet Butter (Unsalted)
1 TB Confectioners sugar
1 Egg yolk
1 1/2 tsp ICE water


Slice butter into thin slices and "cut" into flour and confectioners sugar with tips of fingers.


Mix cold yolk with ice water and add to flour/butter mixture.


Quickly pull into a dough.


Either roll out immediately or draw into a ball and flatten to a disk, wrap in plastic wrap and chill until needed.


This dough can be pressed into a pie dish or tart pan, it need not be rolled.


Pairs Well With


Notes

This is not exactly Pâte Sucrée, at least not by the official French definition and method, but it works well for tart shells.
