Serves 6-8

Tart Dough


2½ cups flour
1 tablespoon sugar
1 teaspoon salt
2 sticks unsalted butter, cold and cut into small pieces
2 to 4 tablespoons ice water


In a large bowl, combine flour, sugar and salt. Cut in butter with two forks or a pastry blender until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Add ice water (1 tablespoon at a time), mix until dough just comes together. If dough is too dry, add more water, 1 tablespoon at a time. Turn out dough from bowl onto work surface, and knead once or twice to combine. Shape into disks. Wrap in plastic wrap, and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes.
