Recipe for :

Crostata

This recipe comes from Chef Jonathan Arthur of Italy with Relish (Italian cooking holidays)

"I have always seemed to find myself by accident or design, in a kitchen. As the youngest child of a farming family in Cornwall I was always the one helping my mother make butter, bread and of course pasties. As a teenager in school we were allowed to chose between metalwork or domestic science, as the former was taught by a notorious sadist and the latter was full of girls and I was the only boy in the cooking class" - Italy with Relish web site

Ingredients

250g of self-raising flour (or plain flour and baking powder)
80g of sugar
200g of butter
2 eggs
1 lemon
Damson or other jam

Method

  • Zest the lemon then mix with the flour, sugar, butter, and eggs to form soft dough.
  • Keeping aside a piece the size of a ping pong ball, push the rest into a baking dish to form a layer about 1 cm deep.
  • Spread the jam on the top to cover.
  • Roll and cut the remaining dough laying this over the top to form a decorative lattice.
  • Bake for 20 minutes at 180° or until the lattice starts to brown.
