To quote Amanda: "We love press-in doughs. For all the obvious reasons..." As tart crusts go, we'll take the reprieve.

We used the dough for one of this week's finalist, the Madeira Tart!

How convenient! I was LITERALLY in the process of making a press in crust (made my custard already, getting ready to make the crust), and I needed to wait for my butter to come to room temp, so I sat down for a sec and checked my email, and just look what I found! I video on making press in crust! Thank you!!

I love your videos. I teach kids and you need to give them clear directions but treat them as adults. Pie crust is one of my favorite recipes to teach.

For small tart shells I use a morter to press in the sides.

Happy cooking!

Thanks! You taught me well on the press-in pie crust front...
