Sweet Pastry Crust

One of the easiest and most delicious GF tart crusts we’ve come across, this can and should be your go-to for all your spring- and summer-dessert tarts! For pies, you’ll need to roll out the dough, place it in a pie tin, weigh it down with parchment paper and dried beans or baking weights, and par-bake at 350°F for 15 minutes before adding and baking with fillings. For galettes, you can just top the raw dough with sliced, macerated fruits and then bake.
