024 – Sweet Dough Recipe (Pâte Sucrée)
2 cups of flour
1/3 cup of sugar
2 large eggs
1 stick of cold butter (8 Tbsp)
1/4 tsp of salt
1/2 tsp of baking powder
Mix all the dry ingredients together (flour, sugar, salt and baking powder)
Cut the cold butter into pieces and work it into the flour until it is fully incorporated.
In a separate bowl beat slightly the eggs, just enough to mix the yolks with the whites.
Mix the eggs with the dry mix.
Sprinkle some flour on a flat surface and work the dough until it becomes smooth.
Separate the dough into 2 batches.
– Sweet dough can be frozen up to 2 months. Just make sure to put it in the fridge the night before you are planning to use it so it defrosts.
– Sweet dough is very forgiving when it comes to re-rolling. It actually stretches better the second time.
