Sweet flan pastry

Yield: 1 servings

Measure Ingredient
300 grams Unsalted butter
500 grams Plain flour
150 grams Sugar
1 dash Salt
1 \N Egg yolk
1 \N Egg

Put the butter, cut into pieces, with the flour, sugar and salt, into a mixer. Work it until the mixture resembles coarse semolina.

Add the egg yolk and the whole egg and do not work the machine for a moment longer than necessary (VERY IMPORTANT) to amalgamate the eggs with the flour mixture. Form it into a ball and leave it to rest in the refrigerator for several hours before using it.

(The pastry will keep very well in the refrigerator for a few days, wrapped in transparent film)
