Pate Sucree

Rated as 3.6 out of 5 Stars

" It is a typically French pie crust also known as Pate Sablee. I hope it helps you and anyone else looking for pie dough. Use real butter and fresh eggs for best results. Note: The dough is generally cooked at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) for about 20 minutes. The dough will work well with tarts, large and small, and pies. Don't forget to prick the dough with a fork just as you would with other doughs. "

  3. Shape the dough into a ball and cover it in cellophane wrap and let it rest in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes.

This dough is just fine, but do not over chill. Use fresh eggs. Not Pate Sablee ( sandy pastry- much more crumbly) Not really pate sucree either, but close enough
