Cinnamon Sugar Wedges


Cinnamon Sugar wedges are super easy and super delicious :). This is a very basic recipe that comes together really quick but looks pretty for company. I'm sure that there are all kinds of crazy things you could do with it, as I usually talk about variations. I'm sure some fresh berries would be a wonderful accompaniment. Flavored honey would also probably bring up the excitement value and add another flavor component. This is baked in a tart pan, 9" I believe which gives it the lovely scalloped edges. This is a basic pie crust recipe that can be used in many different applications.
 
Cinnamon Sugar Wedges

Ingredients:
-3 cups all-purpose flour
-1 teaspoon salt
-1 1/4 cups butter, cut into 1/2" pieces, cold
-1 egg
-1 tablespoon vinegar
-5 tablespoons water

- 1 tablespoon butter, melted
- 1 ½ tablespoons granulated sugar
- ½ teaspoon cinnamon
- 1-2 tablespoons honey

1. Put the flour and salt in the bowl of a food processor. Process until mixed.
2. Add the butter and process until the mixture is about pea size and even in texture.
3. Mix together the egg, vinegar, and water in another small bowl or measuring cup.
4. Add the egg mixture into the flour mixture in the food processor through the feed tube while the processor is running.
5. Process until the dough comes away from sides, about 15-20 seconds. Do not over mix or the dough will be tough.
6. Divide the dough in half. Set aside half for another purpose or make two baked rounds in two tart pans.
7. Press the dough into an ungreased tart pan and up the sides. Prick the dough all over with a fork. Place dry beans on foil or the bottom of a 7” springform pan on top of the dough in the tart pan.
8. Bake 12-15 minutes or until lightly browned. Take out of oven and brush with butter. Mix together the sugar and cinnamon. Sprinkle the tart with the sugar cinnamon mixture. Bake an additional 4-5 minutes to set the sugar on the dough. Take out of oven. Cool in pan on wire rack.

Yield: 2 - 9” baked circles
