I have used this tart crust recipe for fruit tarts and for chocolate tarts.  It works great for all of them!

Tart Crust Recipe

1 3/4 c. all-purpose flour

1/2 c. unsalted butter, chilled and cut into cubes

1/2 c. granulated sugar

1 egg

pinch of salt

ice water

dried beans

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

In a food processor place flour, butter and sugar.  Pulse a couple of times to mix.  Then add egg and pulse till blended.  Drizzle ice water in while pulsing until dough comes together.  Remove from food processor and press into tart pan, evenly.

Place aluminum foil over tart dough, covering all the edges and hanging over.  Pour dried beans onto foil and place in oven on cookie sheet.

Bake for 30 minutes and remove from oven.  Let set for 5 minutes before removing beans.
