Crust and Crumble Dough
 
Makes enough for 1 (13x9-inch) pan
Ingredients
  • 1 cup plus 3 tablespoons unsalted butter, softened
  • 1 large egg yolk
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • ⅔ cup old-fashioned oats
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1½ teaspoons baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon salt
Instructions
  1. Spray a 13x9-inch baking pan with baking spray with flour. Line pan with parchment paper, letting excess extend over sides of pan.
  2. In a large bowl, beat butter and egg yolk with a mixer at medium speed until smooth and creamy. In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, oats, sugar, baking powder, and salt. Gradually add flour mixture to butter mixture, beating just until combined.
  3. Turn out mixture onto a work surface, and gently knead until a crumbly dough forms. Press three-fourths of dough into prepared pan. Reserve remaining dough in a small bowl.
