Homemade Marmalade Tart
- 200 grams of flour 00
- 100 g butter, room temperature
- 1 pinch of salt
- 1 Organic Lemon, grated
- 2 eggs, room temperature
- 1 jar of orange marmalade (about 400g)
STEP 1: Preheat oven to180 ° C (350F). In a large mixing bowl, cut the sugar with the butter using a fork until uniform pea-sized balls are formed.
STEP 2: Add the egg yolks with a whisk and mix well by hand for a few seconds, so as to break up the lumps of butter that may still be there and form a smooth paste. Add the lemon zest.
STEP 3: Put the flour on a pastry board and make a hole in the center, then pour in the cream butter, sugar and egg.
STEP 4: Knead the dough well, until it turns into soft dough. Wrap in plastic wrap and place in refrigerator for at least 1 hour.
STEP 5: When hour is up, let pastry rest for 30-60 minutes until tempered a bit. Separate about a quarter of the dough, then roll out into 6-8 strips then set aside. Roll the remaining pastry into about 2mm thick. Grease and flour a baking tin, then line the buttered pan with the pastry, fill it with the jam, and decorate it with the giblets. Bake for about 50 minutes, until the pastry is golden. Enjoy with a glass of tea! Buon Appetito!
