Tart Dough (sweet)

Total Time

This is my best pastry for a sweet tart. It always behaves itself, and it's light and tender and tasty.


  1. Cream the butter, sugar and salt together in your mixer or food processor.
  2. Add the egg and mix until combined.
  3. Add the flour and mix until it all comes together.
  4. Flatten into a disk, wrap in plastic and chill thoroughly (at least 1 hour) before using.

AWESOME! This had an incredible flaky texture and a great sweet taste that was gentle but not overpowering. It was sticky dough, so I put flour on my hands when I was pressing it into the mini tart pans I was using. I used this with Lennie's "Award-Winning Butter Tarts" (#14756). Thanks for such an outstanding crust, I'm sure I'll use it many times!Update: I made this again, this time with peaches as filling (I'll be posting that recipe soon enough!). Also I used a full-sized tart pan and it was fine. It was fantastic!! Anyway, thanks again petitfour!
