- 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).
- Bake again for 2 minutes, until golden.
- When ready, remove from oven and allow to cool for 20 minutes.
- Cut off the edge with a serrated knife and fill with your favorite filling!
