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.
