2 1/3 cups cake or pastry flour

1/3 cup sugar

1/2 pound (2 sticks) unsalted butter, chilled, cut into small pieces

2 egg yolks

1 or 2 tablespoons heavy cream


  1. In a food processor fitted with the steel blade, combine the flour and sugar. Add the butter and process until the texture resembles fine meal.
  2. In a small bowl, whisk together the yolks and 1 tablespoon of the cream. Scrape into the machine and process until a ball begins to form, using the additional tablespoon of cream, if necessary. Remove the dough from the machine, and on a lightly floured surface, press down into a circle.
  3. Wrap in plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 1 hour.
