A flavored delicious dough for your pies or your biscuits

It seems a bit long but so worth it.

Attached are some pictures of desserts I have made using

this dough.

Do not over knead the dough and allow time to rest.

100 GR BUTTER ROOM TEMPERATURE (mandatory)

100 G ICING SUGAR

1 WHOLE EGG

1 PINCH OF SALT

VANILLA EXTRACT or lime or any other flavor

250 G ALL PURPOSE FLOUR

For your butter if it comes from the refrigirator, do not hesitate to cut it into cubes and put it in the microwave 10 seconds low power if it is not enough to add another 5 seconds.

Mix butter and icing sugar with a spatula until you get an homogeneous mixture.

I do it with my Kenwood I use « the hook. »

 but I double or even quadruple the quantities as the food processor is big.

I then freeze the unused one.

 It is always conforting to have already homemade one when you need it.

Just let it defreeze gently in the refrigerator, or if you do not have time at room temperature, it takes about an hour.

Add the egg and continue mixing.

 to avoid finding pieces of shells I broke the egg in a ramekin that I added to the preparation.

With the food processor I use power 2 « sheet ».

You then get  a « creamy ».

Add flour, salt, flavor extract and mix until you get a ball shape.

Or use your food processor with the hook.

Form a shape and flatten it gently.

Refrigerate at least 30 minutes in cling film.

Caution: Do not overwork the dough or it will crumble.

It is also important to let the dough rest.

it avoid shrinking while  baking.
