Tart Pastry Shell

Here is a basic sweet shell recipe that can be filled with whatever your heart desires. You need no baking skills to successfully make it. (See Lemon Lime Tart recipe for filling.)

Ingredients
2-1/2 cups flour
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 pound unsalted butter, cut into small pieces
2 egg yolks
2 Tablespoons heavy cream

Combine the flour, sugar, and butter in a medium bowl. With a pastry blender, cut the ingredients together so that the mixture is crumbly. Combine the egg yolks and 1 Tablespoon of the heavy cream in a small bowl and mix them together well. Add the egg yolk mixture to the flour mixture and blend them together so that as smooth ball is formed (add the remaining 1 Tablespoon of cream if necessary.)

Place the dough on a lightly floured surface and divide it in half. Press each half into a 1-inch thick circle. Wrap the circles in plastic wrap and refrigerate them for 1 hour. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. On a lightly floured surface, roll the dough out to fit a 9-inch pie plate. Fill it with the desired filling. Bake the pie crust for 25 minutes or until it is set.

Makes: one 9-inch tart
