1/2 teaspoon salt

1/2 cup butter (cold and cut into pieces)

5-8 tablespoons ice water

Usually cooks at 375 degrees Fahrenheit and makes enough for one 13.75×4.25 tart pan.

In a large bowl combine flour and salt. Add the butter and combine with a pastry blender until it resembles a coarse meal with pea-sized pieces. Add 4 tablespoons of water and blend with the flour and butter mixture with a fork. Continue adding ice water 1 tablespoon at a time until dough comes together. Remove dough from bowl and place on a lightly floured surface and knead a few times until smooth. Form dough into a thick disk, cover with plastic wrap, and refrigerate for at least 2 hours before using. When ready to use, let the dough stand at room temperature for 5-10 minutes before rolling it out on a floured surface. Carefully press the dough into a tart pan, pierce the bottom a few times with a fork, and bake for 12 minutes.

The Classic Tart Crust Recipe

What you’ll need

1 tablespoon sugar

1/2 teaspoon salt

1 cup flour

6 tablespoons butter (cold and cut into pieces)

1 egg (beaten)

Makes 6 mini tarts

In a large mixing bowl combine flour, sugar, and salt. Add the butter and combine with a pastry blender until it resembles a coarse meal with pea-sized pieces. Drizzle the beaten egg over the mixture and blend with a fork. Once dough has come together remove from the bowl and onto a floured surface. Knead the dough a couple times until it’s smooth and combined. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 2 hours. When ready to use, allow the dough to sit at room temperature for 5-10 minutes. Divide the dough into six equal balls. Roll out each ball into a circle just larger than your tart pan. Carefully press the dough into each tart pan, use a fork to pierce the bottom a few times, and bake at 375 degrees Fahrenheit for 15-20 minutes, or until crust is golden brown.
