Cut butter into 1/2-in. cubes and freeze in a single layer until very cold, 10 to 20 minutes. In a food processor, whirl flour and salt until blended.
Add butter and pulse on and off just until bits of butter are about the size of peas. In a small bowl, lightly beat egg and yolk with 3 tbsp. ice water.
Add egg mixture, about half at a time, and pulse just until evenly moistened and holding together (you may need to add 1 more tbsp. ice water as you're pulsing).
Flatten the dough into 2 rough squares, each about 6 in. wide. Wrap squares in wax paper. Chill until cold, at least 1 hour and up to 3 days.
Remove dough from refrigerator and let stand 5 minutes. Unwrap and, on a lightly floured surface, roll dough halves into 1/8-in.-thick squares, 10 to 11 in. each.
Transfer each square to a rimmed baking sheet and prick all over with a fork.
Bake until medium brown, 25 to 35 minutes. Cool on pan, about 30 minutes.
Spread with crme frache, dividing evenly, and top with smoked salmon and capers.
Recommended wine: Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Sauvignon Blanc
Salmon on the menu? Try pairing with Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, and Sauvignon Blanc. To decide on white or red, you should consider your seasoning and sauces. Chardonnay is a great friend to buttery, creamy dishes, while sauvignon blanc can complement herb or citrus-centric dishes. A light-bodied, low-tannin red such as the pinot noir goes great with broiled or grilled salmon. The Frank Family Vineyards Lewis Vineyard Reserve Chardonnay with a 5 out of 5 star rating seems like a good match. It costs about 62 dollars per bottle.
