INGREDIENTS

2 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 cup sugar
1 cup unsalted butter
2 egg yolks
1/4 cup heavy cream

INSTRUCTIONS

  1. 1
    Sift flour into a large bowl. Stir in sugar. Cut butter into 1/2" cubes and toss with flour until cubes are coated. Crumble the butter into the flour by rubbing it between your fingertips (the coolest part of your hand), lifting the pieces and letting them fall down again. Continue until mixture resembles coarse cornmeal.
  2. 2
    In a small bowl whisk egg yolks and heavy cream together then pour on to the flour mixture. Make a moist ball with the dough. Cover and refrigerate until ready to use.
