Just in the nick of time!

TWD, and it's (barely) still Tuesday! I did re-make the tartlets, and they turn out much better when I actually follow directions! The dough was an entirely different dough with the egg yolk added. I suspect that this is partially to do with the egg yolk and partially to do with the fact that I received my replacement lid for the food processor today (YAY!!!). I was bad and melted the one that came with it by trying to wash it in the dishwasher. Oops. It's better now though. See, pretty dough!
And with good dough, the shells turned out much more beautifully! They had more substance and weren't so crumbly. Again, I'm converted - following directions is soooo worth it!
So, pie crust mission accomplished, just add jam and strawberries (and a little cool whip). Delish!

The little shells are so cute! So directions aren't overrated? ;)

I agree, your shells came out divinely. I love the shot of the big hunk of dough.

Very nice - the food processor really makes this dough a snap.

Shari: Thanks! The crust was co good that I felt I had to!

Ulkrike & EB: Thanks! I love my food processor. I put getting it off for a while, but now I don't see how I lived without it. I thought I was going to flip out while I waited for the *backordered* replacement lid to come in!

GN & RB: Thanks!!!
