Sour Cream Tart Pastry
Sour cream provides both the shortening and the liquid in this rich pastry that can be rolled out easily without first being refrigerated. Use this pastry anytime you use sour cream in pie filling.
¾ cup butter
2 cups unbleached all-purpose flour
3 tbsp. sour cream
Cut butter into the flour until pieces resemble coarse cornmeal. Add the sour cream, tossing the mixture with a fork until it clears the side of the bowl. Gently press together to form a ball.
