Pâte Sucrée (single crust)

Use any leftover from this sweet dough for simple cookies –

just roll and cut into your favorite shapes.



1¼         cups unbleached, all-purpose flour

1⁄8          teaspoon kosher salt

1            stick (½ cup) unsalted butter, cubed, room temperature

¼           cup granulated sugar

1            large egg, room temperature

¼           teaspoon pure vanilla extract


1.  Put the flour and salt into a small mixing bowl.  Whisk to combine and set aside.

2.  Using a Cuisinart®  hand mixer on medium speed, beat the butter in a medium bowl until light and creamy.  Gradually add the sugar and mix together until lightened and fully combined.  Add the egg and vanilla and mix until incorporated.

3.  Add the flour and mix on low speed until the dough just comes together. Form dough into a flat disc, wrap in plastic and chill in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours or preferably overnight until ready to use.
