Why I Love This Recipe

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

Ingredients You'll Need

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.
