Rub butter into flour and salt with your finger tips. Add the egg and water, and mix until just combined. Chill to harden. Work out dough to soften onto a floured countertop. Roll out into a 3mm thick disk. Gently prick with a fork, and lay dough over a greased tart pan and shape into a pie. Remove excess dough and chill for up to 3 days; uncovered.

Baking

Blind-bake tart shell for 30 min at 350ºF/180ºC with pie weights. Remove pie weights and bake for an additional 12 min, or until golden brown. Baked tart shell can be stored at room temperature for up to 4 days.
