    When the dough is ready, put some flour on your working space and start to work your dough. Do it fast so the butter won’t start to melt. Put it in your tart pan. Put a baking paper on it and some baking beans. Bake in the preheated oven at 180 degrees for 20 minutes. Take the baking paper off and bake it for another 10 minutes. Let it rest.
