sugar crust


Explanation:
Sandteig = Pate sableuse according to my dtv Küchen/-Lexikon.

My Julia Child's classic "Mastering the Art of French Cooking" has a recipe for Pate sablee calling it Sugar Crust.

It is a variation of pastry dough / tart dough/ tart crust/ sweet short paste / pate sucre - there are probably more names - that has a particularly high sugar content and is therefore rather hard to work with.
