  1. Heat oven to 350ºF.
  2. Combine flour, 2 tablespoons sugar and 1/4 teaspoon salt in food processor bowl. Pulse to combine. Add cold butter; process until butter is incorporated and mixture is pea-sized balls. Do not overmix.
  3. Mix egg yolk and ice water in small bowl. Add to processor; pulse to combine until dough comes together.
  4. Turn dough onto lightly floured surface, patting into disk. Roll dough until just larger than shape of pan; gently lift to fit pan. Press dough into flutes of pan; trim edges with sharp knife. Using fork tines, pierce bottom of tart shell liberally to prevent air bubbles from forming.
