How to Make Shortcrust Pastry for White Chocolate Fruit Tart

Shortcrust Pastry step 1
Step 1) – Whip, with the help of the electric whisk or the planetary stand mixer, the soft butter with the sugar for at least 3-4 minutes until you have a creamy mixture.
Shortcrust Pastry step 2
Step 2) – Whipping at high speed, add the egg yolks, one at a time, waiting for the first to absorb before adding the second, until you have a smooth, homogeneous and lump-free cream. Finally add a pinch of salt.

Step 3) – Now add the flour (previously sieved) all at once and mix by hand with a wooden spoon.
Shortcrust Pastry step 4
Step 4) – Transfer the pastry on the table (or try this non-slip mat that sticks to the table, really useful) and knead a little to mix all the ingredients together. The dough will stick a little to your hands, that’s normal. Add a little of flour to compact.

Step 5) – Make a sort of ball and wrap the pastry in a plastic wrap and let it cool in the refrigerator for about 2 hours.
Shortcrust Pastry step 6
Step 6) – Now we are going to make the base of our tart so sprinkle the work surface with flour and roll out the pastry (now cold and hard) to a thickness of about 4 mm (0,15 inch). Then wrap the dough on the rolling pin and lay it on your tart pan. With the help of the rolling pin, flatten the edges of the surface to cut away the excess dough. The edge of the tart should be about 1 inch high.

Step 7) – Place a baking paper sheet on the pastry and fill the pastry shell with dried beans. This is a trick to ensure that the shortcrust pastry does not swell and deform during cooking; the weight of the beans will keep the surface flat. Now bake in the preheated oven at 180°/350F for 15 minutes, placing the pan in the middle of the oven. Remove the paper sheet and the beans and bake for another 5 minutes. Let cool and set aside.
