Cornmeal Tart Dough
This recipes yields enough dough for one lemon pine-nut tart.
- 1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 cup coarse cornmeal
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 cup (1 stick) chilled unsalted butter, cut into small pieces
- 2 large egg yolks, lightly beaten
- 2-4 tablespoons ice water
Combine flour, cornmeal, sugar, baking powder, and salt in a food processor; pulse several times. Add butter; process until mixture is the consistency of coarse meal, about 7 seconds. With motor running, add yolks and enough ice water so dough comes together. Do not overmix.
Divide dough in half; press to flatten into disks. Wrap each in plastic; chill at least 30 minutes or overnight.
