  • Grease a 28 cm tart pan with butter, dust with flour and set aside.
  • In a bowl, add the flour, icing sugar, salt and chilled butter.
  • Mash the butter with your hands and rub the mixture between your fingers to mix, until it becomes yellow and like wet sand.
  • Add the egg and cold water. Mix until the mixture comes together and you create an elastic dough.
  • Wrap the dough in plastic wrap and refrigerate for 1 hour.
  • Preheat oven to 160* C (320* F) Fan.
  • Spread a sheet of parchment paper on a working surface and dust with flour.
  • Spread the chilled dough out with your hands and place on parchment.
  • Dust with some flour and cover with another sheet of parchment paper.
  • Roll out with backward-forward movements not left-right. Then rotate the dough sideways and roll out again.
  • If the parchment creases dust with some more flour and continue to roll out.
  • Remove the parchment, wrap the dough onto your rolling pin and transfer to prepared tart pan.
  • Press the dough with your fingers to fit it nicely on the bottom and sides of the tart pan.
  • Cut away any dough that hangs over the edges and use it to fill in any gaps.
  • Pierce the bottom of the dough all over with a fork.
  • Wrap with 2 sheets of plastic wrap in a crisscross manner and add cooking weight so that the dough doesn’t rise. Fold the edges of the plastic wrap inward.
  • Bake for 30 minutes.
  • Remove from oven, remove wrap and cooking weights and bake again for 20 minutes.
  • When ready, remove from oven, brush the whole surface with egg wash (1 egg yolk diluted with 1 tablespoon of water).

  • When ready, remove from oven and allow to cool for 20 minutes.
