Easy Shortbread Tart Crust (No Roll)

READY IN: 35mins
Recipe by SweetSueAl

Looked and looked on Zaar for just the shortbread crust and found many delicious crusts, but just not the one I was looking for. Perhaps I didn't key in the right search, but I found this recipe on the web and it's just what I was looking for...simple.

This crust was fantastic. Everyone loved it. My 9 year old daughter and I made it in the food processor and then smashed it into mini tart molds. I was afraid the crust would be chewy and tough because we really smashed it in to get it even, but it was not. The crusts were light and flaky and delicious. This is going to be my go-to recipe for tart crust. Thank you. (A triple recipe made 12 4 inch tarts and 12 2 inch tarts with a bit of dough left over.)
