I admit that I love cute little pans, and I have many of them. But, oh, what you can do with a 6-inch tart pan! If you only have a 6-inch cake or pie pan, this will still work, it just won’t have the cute tart shape. In any case, tart pans are not expensive (Sur La Table), so I would encourage you to get one if you are inclined.
This crust is easy, quick, cholesterol free, and can be used for a million fillings– from sweet to savory and back again; from baked to fresh to chilled to frozen– this is your baby! (Or at least it’s my baby, haha.) Just think of the possibilities! But you have to start somewhere, and today we start with the crust.
