Introduction: How to Make Sweet Tart Crust Dough.
This is my recipe for the tart crust. I've been making a lot, of tarts lately (both sweet and savory), and wanted to share a basic recipe for how to make a slightly sweet, very flaky tart crust from scratch that can serve as a base for a variety of fruit tarts and tattlers. Use a 9.5-inch tart pan.
This tart dough recipe makes an amazingly flaky and light crust, so please follow this closely: I'll explain it in a lot of detail, but making tart crusts is super easy once you understand how they work.
HOW TO MAKE A TART SKIN?
Correct measurements are important for making an acidic scale:
. 1 1/2 cups flour
. 1/4 cup sugar
. 1/8 teaspoon salt
. 10 tablespoons of cold, unsalted butter
. 2 egg yolks
. 1 tablespoon heavy cream
. 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
Step 1: Using a Food Processor
Grind the Flour, Sugar, and Salt Until Well Blended.
Step 2: Cut the Cold Butter Into Small Cubes.
Step 3: Add Butter to a Food Processor
(which Has Been Mixed With Flour, Sugar and Salt From Step 1)
Step 4: Pulse This Mixture in the Food Processor Until the Consistency Becomes That of a Coarse Meal.
Step 5: In a Small Cup, Combine the Egg Yolk, Heavy Cream and Vanilla and Stir Well Together.
Add the Egg Mixture to the Food Processor and Pulse to Combine.
Step 6: Shape the Dough Into a Disk on a Foil.
I Usually Do It With My Hands and Fingers Pushing the Dough Away From Its Center Into a Round Shape pressing into the foil.
Use a very small amount of flour to dust working surface to avoid dough clinging to the foil. I occasionally bring the tart pan over the tart dough to make sure the round I am making is larger in diameter than a well of my tart pan.
Step 7: Grease the 9.5-inch Tart Pan.
Then, I take the foil and ease the round into a tart pan,
patting it firmly into the bottom and up the sides. Carefully remove the foil:
Step 8: If Some Pieces of Crust Fall Off, Just Gently Press Them Back.
If your foil gets stuck to the dough.
Don’t remove it and refrigerate the tart shell. After your crust has been refrigerated for at least an hour, you will be able to remove foil easily.
Step 9: Extend the Dough Slightly Above the Rim to Compensate for Any Shrinkage During Baking.
Step 10: Place the Tart Pan With the Dough in the Refrigerator for at Least an Hour.
Cover Tart Pan With Plastic.
Step 11: Preheat Oven to 400 F.
Line the Cold Tart Shell With a Sheet of Aluminum Oil, With Edges Hanging Over the Sides of the Tart Pan.
Step 12: Place Pie Weights Into the Shell.
in My Case, I Used Rice and Quinoa.
Step 13: Bake the Tart Skins for 15 Minutes.
Usually When I Wait. I am always accompanied by my favorite herbal kratom drink, and after 15 minutes
then remove from oven, lift the foil with a weight from the pan.
Step 14: Continue Baking the Tart Shell Without Weights and Aluminum Foil for 15 Minutes,
Until Golden Brown Color. Let it cool.
Your tart crust is ready!
HOW TO USE TART SHELL?
. You can use this pre-baked tart shell as a base for various tart fillings where the tart crust is pre-baked in advance (as described above), and the filling is prepared separately, as well, and then just added into the pre-baked tart shell.
. For other recipes, you will pre-bake this tart shell only for the first 15 minutes, and then you will add a filling and continue baking the tart shell with the filling already in it – as in this breakfast tart. Enjoy, experiment, and I’d love to hear how it turns out for you!
