Shortbread Tart and Pie Crust

Shortbread Crust

The beauty of this buttery-rich recipe is that it can be patted into the tart or pie pan - no rolling needed! Use it for cream pies or any tart or pie that calls for a pre-baked crust.

  • 1/3 cup confectioners' sugar
  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher or sea salt


  1. Heat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Blend ingredients to make a soft dough.
  3. Pat into a 9- or 10-inch tart or pie pan.
  4. Prick crust well with fork.
  5. Bake for 15-20 minutes.

Yield: 1 (10-inch) tart
