Tart crust

150g flour
70g butter (melted and cooled)
1 egg yolk
1 vanilla sugar sachet
1 tbsp vinegar
2 tbsp water
a pinch of salt

+butter and flour -> your baking pan

I tested many tart crusts – for some, I needed to wait one hour while they were sitting in the fridge; for others... 3 hours.
I am very demanding with my time, so this old family recipe was perfect for me!
I think it will save you a lot of time.

In a bowl, mix the flour, vanilla sugar, and salt. Separately, mix the wet ingredients – the butter, the egg yolk, the vinegar, and the water. Pour the wet ingredients onto the dry ones.
When you reach a nice consistency, start to knead until you get a soft and wet ball of dough. 
Using a silicone mould (which doesn’t need greasing) or one of another type (either round or square) – which must be greased though –, spread the dough onto its bottom and its sides. 

Et voilà !
