French Tart Dough
  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 1 tablespoon Canola or vegetable oil
  • 3 tablespoons water
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • ⅛ teaspoon salt
  • 1 rounded cup flour
  1. Preheat oven to 410 degrees F
  2. In an ovenproof bowl, combine the butter, oil, water, sugar and salt. Put the bowl in the oven and heat, until butter is melted and beginning to brown on the edges. Remove from the oven and carefully dump in the flour, stirring until a dough forms. Transfer the dough to an 8 or 9" tart pan with removable bottom. Spread to fill pan and press dough up the sides of the pan. Patch any cracks that form.
  3. Prick with a fork and bake for about 15 minutes until golden. Let shell cool before filling.
