45 mins Prep Time

40 mins Cook Time

Ingredients

  • 1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour

  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar

  • Pinch of salt

  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter

  • 1 egg yolk

  • 1/4 cup cold water

  • 2 teaspoons gelatin powder

  • 1 1/2 cups whole milk

  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar

  • 3 tablespoons earl grey tea

  • 1 cup heavy cream

  • 6-7 fresh figs, trimmed and sliced into 1/8-inch thick

  • 2 tablespoons honey

  • 1 teaspoon hot water

Directions

Pâté Sucrée

7 Steps

  • Step 1

    In a bowl, mix together the flour, sugar and salt.

  • Step 2

    Add the butter. Use your fingertips to rub the butter into the dry ingredients until it resembles breadcrumbs. 

  • Step 3

    Add the egg yolk and mix for about 15 seconds using a fork. Turn dough out onto a work surface, then knead to bring together into a smooth ball. 

  • Step 4

    Wrap with plastic wrap. Refrigerate for at least an hour.

  • Step 5

    Remove the dough from refrigerator and let sit for 20-30 minutes. Roll the dough out to ¼-inch thick on a lightly floured surface.

  • Step 6

    Carefully transfer dough to a 9-inch tart pan. Gently press the dough down into the pan, ensuring that no empty space remains between the dough and the pan. Cover tart pan with plastic wrap and place in freezer for about 30 minutes.

  • Step 7

    Preheat oven to 350°F. Place a parchment paper directly on top of the dough. Fill the pie with pie weights or dried beans to keep the dough from rising up. Bake for 15 minutes, then lift the weight-filled parchment from the pan. Bake for an additional 10-15 minutes, until golden brown. Place on a baking rack to cool.
