  Makes one 10-inch tart shell or four 4-inch tart shells or 1 galette shell
The addition of sugar and egg makes this the richer cousin of a standard pie pastry dough. It bakes to a crisp, more cookielike texture than the savory pastry and is perfect for the lemon galette recipe in our archives.
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
5 tablespoons sugar
1/8 teaspoon salt
10 tablespoons unsalted butter, at room temperature
1 whole egg, plus 2 egg yolks

In a bowl, combine the flour, sugar, salt and butter. Using a heavy-duty stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment or a handheld electric mixer, beat on medium speed until the butter is well coated with the flour and is broken into small pieces. Add the egg and egg yolks and beat together until the mixture comes together in a smooth dough.

Remove from the bowl, gather into a ball, wrap in plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 1 hour or for up to 1 week before use.
