Tart Pastry


1 1/3 cups all-purpose flour
1 pinch salt
1/2 cup butter, softened
1 egg yolk
3 tablespoons cold water, or as needed

In a medium bowl, stir together 1 1/3 cups of flour and salt. Add the butter, 1 egg yolk and water, and stir until the mixture forms large crumbs. If it is too dry to press a handful together, stir in more water. Press the dough into a ball, and wrap in plastic wrap. Flatten slightly, and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes, or until firm. This part can be done up to three days in advance. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Bake for 15 minutes, or until the filling begins to brown. Reduce the oven temperature to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Bake for another 10 minutes.

Who said apple tart!
