Herbed Dough

6 4-inch tartlets

Use this dough to make our Salad-Quiche Tarlets.


  • 1 ¼ cups all-purpose flour

  • ½ teaspoon salt

  • ½ cup (1 stick) chilled unsalted butter, cut into small pieces

  • 1 tablespoon fresh thyme leaves

  • 3 tablespoons ice water


  1. In a food processor, pulse the flour and salt to combine. Add the butter, and process until mixture resembles coarse meal, about 10 seconds. Add the thyme, and pulse a few times.

  2. With machine running, add the ice water through the feed tube in a slow, steady stream until the dough just holds together. Do not overmix.

  3. Turn out dough onto a clean work surface. Flatten into a disk. Wrap in plastic; chill at least 30 minutes or overnight.
