Sweet Tart Pastry
Why This Recipe Works
For our sweet tart pastry recipe, we found that a single egg yolk and a tablespoon of cream gave the dough the necessary richness. Confectioners’ sugar produced a melt-in-your mouth texture in this recipe, which is formally known as pâte sucrée. Rolling the dough between sheets of plastic or parchment ensures that our sweet tart pastry recipe is easy to handle. Chill the dough and then blind-bake it before filling it with lemon curd or another filling.
