Ingredients[edit]

Procedure[edit]

  1. With an electric stand mixer or hand-held mixer, combine flour, butter and sugar until the mixture has the consistency of small peas.
  2. With the machine on low speed, add eggs and yolk, and mix just until well-incorporated, about 25 seconds.
  3. Wrap dough tightly in plastic wrap and chill for at least 30 minutes before rolling out.

Tips, Notes, and Variations[edit]

  • European-style butter, which has a higher fat content than American butter, is recommended.
