Heat oven to 350°F. In the bowl of a food processor, pulse flour and powdered sugar until combined. Add butter; pulse until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Press mixture evenly into bottom and sides of prepared tart pan. Freeze 7 to 10 minutes to firm up slightly. Using fork tines, poke tart crust all over so it will not puff up
