Ingredients
  1. 3 cups all-purpose flour
  2. ¼ cup plus 2 tablespoons sugar
  3. ½ teaspoon salt
  4. 9 tablespoons cold unsalted butter, diced
  5. ⅓ cup plus 2½ tablespoons ice-cold water
Instructions
  1. In the work bowl of a food processor, combine the flour, sugar, and salt; pulse to combine. Add the butter to the flour mixture; pulse until mixture is crumbly, about 20 seconds. Gradually add the water in a slow, steady stream until mixture forms a dough. Turn the dough out onto a sheet of plastic wrap. Shape the dough into a large disk, wrap tightly in plastic wrap, and refrigerate for at least 1 hour.
  2. On a lightly floured surface, roll the dough to ⅛-inch thickness. Using a 4-inch square cutter, cut 12 squares; press dough into 3-inch-square tartlet pans; prick the bottoms of the tartlet shells with a fork. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes, or until golden brown.
