      Title: Sweet buttery tart crust
 Categories: Pies, Basics
      Yield: 1 Servings
 
  1 2/3 c  Flour
    1/4 c  Sugar, very fine
    1/2 ts Salt
     10 tb Butter -chilled
      2    Egg yolks
      1 ts Vanilla extract
      2 ts -cold water
 
    1. Sift flour, sugar and salt into a mixing bowl. Cut chilled sweet
  butter into pieces into the bowl. Using your fingertips, rapidly rub
  the butter and dry ingredients together until th mixture resembles
  course meal. Be careful to use only your fingertips as your palms
  will warm the dough.
    2. Stir egg yolks, vanilla and water together and add to the flour-
  butter mixture and blend in, using a fork. Shape dough into a ball.
  This should not take more than 30 to 45 seconds.
    3. Place the ball of dough onto a pastry board. With the heel of
  your hand, smear about  cup of dough away from you into a 6- to
  8-inch smear; repeat until all the dough has been dealt with. Scrape
  dough together; re- form into a ball, wrap in wax paper and chill for
  2 to 3 hours.
    4. Roll out dough between two sheets of wax paper, or use a floured
  pastry cloth and floured stockinette on your rolling pin, into a round
  large enough to line your pan. Work quickly, as the dough can become
  sticky.
    5. Line either an 8- or 9-inch false-bottom tart pan with dough,
  fitting it loosely into pan and pressing to fit sides. Trim edges 3/4
  inch outside top of pan, and fold this edge over into inside, and
  press into place with fingers. Chill.
    6. Preheat over to 425F.
    7. Line dough in the tart pan with a piece of aluminium foil or wax
  paper and fill with raw beans, rice or pastry weights. Bake for 8
  minutes. Remove weights and foil. Prick the bottom of the dough with
  a fork in several places. For a partially baked shell, return to oven
  for 3 to 4 minutes longer. For a fully baked shell, return for 8 to
  10 minutes longer, or until edges are light brown. [One 8-inch to
  9-inch shell]
