Expand this box for the ingredient list and some cooking tips/ideas for this recipe! ♥ Pate sucree is a delicious, buttery, and flaky pastry dough straight out of France, mainly used for tarts. One of the best parts is that you really don’t need to go out and buy anything special to make it, because I’ll bet you have a lot of the ingredients in your kitchen already! When you’ve finished making the dough, pop it in the fridge for an hour or two before you work with it. If you don’t feel like trying your hand at making elaborate tarts with your fresh new pate sucree, try this: use a muffin pan to make little pastry shells shells, bake them in the oven at 375 degrees F, and fill them with a pudding or mousse of your choice! You could even just fill them with fruits. I like to melt some chocolate chips and pour a very thin layer of the melted chocolate in the bottom of each shell to add a subtle taste of chocolate to the dessert. ♥ INGREDIENTS * 1 and 1/4 cups of flour * 2 tsps of sugar * 1/4 tsp of salt * 7 tbsps of butter * 3 tbsps of water ♥ NOTES The music used in this video is part of the Ranma 1/2 OST. And an apology from me to you: I sound totally awkward in this video! I blame it partially on my nasally voice, but also on the fact that this is the first time I’ve spoken in front of a camera for YouTube. I’ll get better with experience! Trust me!
