This is a great dough to make using a stand mixer. The sweet dough is perfect for tart pies.

Yield: 1 crust


  • 10 Tbsp cold butter
  • 2/3 cup sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 cups flour
  • 1/2 tsp salt


  1. Slice your butter, be sure to keep it cold. If your house is warm you may want to stick it in the freezer for 15 minutes before starting.
  2. Cream together the butter and sugar in a stand mixer using the paddle attachment. Start on medium speed and work up to high.

  4. Once, smooth add 1 egg and mix on high for about a minute.
  5. Separate the other egg and add the yolk to the mixture, set aside the egg whites.
  6. Beat for another 2 minutes until the mixture looks lumpy.
  7. Add the flour and salt to mixer. Before mixing you will need to cover the bowl with a towel to prevent it from flying out. Be sure the towel will not get twisted up in paddle.
  8. Mix on high for about 30 seconds, until you hear the mixer strain.
  9. Add the egg whites and mix in.
  10. Turn the dough out onto a floured surface and roll out. You may need to refrigerate your dough before rolling out, if it has warmed up too much.

Not clear re egg whites. Direction say add 1 egg probably should say 1 yolk as further down in recipe it says add egg whites.
