Delicious Tarte Framboise

Pate Brisee Ingredients:
1-¼ cups all-purpose flour
1 T white sugar
½ c fresh butter, chilled, and cut into 1" pieces
¼ c ice water

Filling Ingredients:
1 Pint fresh Raspberries
2 T white sugar

Preheat Oven to 450°
Sift flour and sugar into a food processor. Add butter and pulse until flour and butter is like coarse meal. Place in bowl and add ½ of the water, stirring with wooden spoon, if it remains dry then add a bit more water. Stir again until just dough gathers and forms a ball. Wrap with plastic wrap and refrigerate.
Approximately ½ hour before you are ready to prepare the tart remove the dough from the refrigerator. Slightly grease with a bit of butter a tart pan. Lightly flour a rolling board and roll the dough into an approximate circle. Place in tart pan using fingers as needed to form sides.
Fill the pastry to within 1-½” of the edge. Pull sides up over edge of fruit, slightly folding in and pleating. Sprinkle fruit with granulated sugar; place in hot oven and bake for 20-25 minutes or until the pastry is beginning to be a golden brown. Remove from oven and allow to cool slightly, remove to a serving plate. You may serve right away and top with fresh whipped cream.
