Recipe Crostata Di Frutta


1 cup flour
1/2 cup confectioner’s sugar
1 orange
3 egg yolks
2 cups fruit preserve or marmalade
1/2 cup butter
2 tbs. butter
1 tbs. honey
1 tbs. granulated sugar

How to make Crostata di Frutta:

Mix the flour with the sugar and the grated orange rind. Make a fontana then knead in the softened butter in pieces, the honey and 2 egg yolks. Knead only long enough to mix the ingredients thoroughly. Use 2/3 of the pastry to line a buttered, sugar dusted tart pan. Spread the jam over the pastry. Brush the remaining dough with a beaten egg yolk and use this dough to make strips and lay them over the tart in a criss-cross pattern. Bake at 350’F for about 35 mins.
