Crostata di Marmellata (Jam Tart)

August 1, 2010 No Comments

This is a classic italian tart which I absolutely love to eat and reminds me so much of my child years in Italy.

Ingredients

  • 300g Flour 00
  • 150g Sugar
  • 175g Butter (chopped in cubes)
  • 1 Egg + 1 Yoke
  • Pinch of salt

How to

On a work surface make a well with your flour and sugar, then add egg and yoke to the well. Work all the ingredients together. It might help if you use pastery cutter or something of the like to work the eggs into flour and sugar, once you have done that start adding in butter. Using the tips of your fingers start to break the butter up with your fingers and amalgamating it with the other ingredients. This will take a little while, once it is all starting to hold together start to kneed until you have a nice smooth pastry. If it is a bit sticky add a little more flour as you are working the pastry.

Refrigerate for 1 hour.

Prepare a tart pan by grease with butter. Once pastry is ready work the pasrty flat with a rolling pin so it covers the tart tin. Keep in mind you want some pastry to create lattice pattern. Cover tart pan, including sides, trim edges to fit. Fill tart with jam of your choice. Generally I use my favourite, Fruits of the forest. In the pictures I have used for this post I have used a home made fig jam which I had on hand. With excess pastry roll out again and with a pastry cutter cut strips to construct lattice. Start from the middle and work out when creating pattern.

Preheat oven to 180 degree and bake until golden brown 40-45 minutes. Cool completely before serving. Can be served with some whipped cream – YUM!

Buon Appetito.
