Mix all the ingredients for the pastry in a food processor until it forms a round ball. Set aside in the fridge for at least ½ hour. Then roll out into a thin pastry, cover a tart pan (20 cm) and press the borders a bit above the edge of the pan. Prick the dough with a fork several places and bake in a preheated oven (180 degrees) for 15 minutes, then remove and set aside.The crust can be baked the day before.
