How to Make PÂTE SUCRÉE Pastry




Yield 20 tarts

Pâte Sucrée is a tender dough enriched with egg yolk. The dough can be quickly made in a food processor or it can be easily made by hand. It is perfect for Sour (Tart) Cherry Pie or Ultimate Canadian Maple Butter Tarts.



  1. In a food processor bowl, combine the flour and sugar – pulse once or twice to combine.
  2. Add the pieces of cold butter into the food processor and pulse 10 to 20 times until the mixture resembles coarse meal.
  3. In a smaller bowl, combine the egg yolks and vanilla bean paste.
  4. With the food processor running, pour the egg yolk mixture in through the feed tube.
  5. Process until the dough comes together (about 10 – 20 seconds). Add a little ice water, one tablespoon at a time until the dough comes together in a ball.
  6. Divide the dough in half. Form each half into a disk and wrap in plastic wrap.
  7. Refrigerate the dough for one hour before use.


CHEF TIP: Ice water is used when making pastry to keep the cold butter from melting. This keeps the pastry crust flaky.
