2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
pinch of salt
4 tbsp powdered sugar
3/4 cup butter, cut up
2 egg yolks
4 tbsp cold water
powdered sugar for dusting, optional

Sift the flour and powdered sugar together with the salt into a mixing bowl. Add the butter and using your fingertips, work the butter into the flour mixture. Make a well in the center of the mixture.

Whisk the egg yolks with the cold water and pour into the well in the center of the flour mixture.

Using your fingers or a fork, combine the two mixtures until smooth.

On a lightly floured surface, roll out the dough to fit a 9-inch pie plate or tart pan. Using a fork, prick the bottom.

Chill for 10 minutes then bake at 400 degrees until golden brown, about 15 minutes.
