Dessert - vegetarian
For the dough:
2 1/4 cup of Italian 00 flour
1/2 cup sugar
3 extra large egg
6 1/2 tbsp butter, diced and chilled
1/3 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
Lemon and orange zest (about 1/2 lemon and 1/2 orange)
In a bowl arrange all dry ingredients and mix them to combine evenly. Add butter and mix it roughly pinching it with flour mixture; form a well and put the eggs in it.
Mix all ingredients well but quickly in order not to warm up butter too much (which would result in a "hard" dough), you have to obtain a smooth "ball".
Wrap it in plastic and refrigerate for 30 minutes at least.
Preheat oven to 375.
Grease and dust with flour a 9" tart pan (or line it with parchment paper).
Remove dough from refrigerator and roll it on a lightly floured surface until you obtain a disc about 1/4" thick.
Place dough in the tart, remove excess dough and poke the bottom with a fork in order to allow steam to escape.
Spread the jam in your "shell" about half of the depth, use part of the leftover dough to decorate it.
Bake on center rack for about 30 minutes (edges have to be golden, baking times depend on the oven, also). Wait until it cools down before cutting it or your jam will go anywhere...
It will serve 8 people at least.
- With leftover dough you can make cookies or freeze it for later use.
- You can use any jam, just choose a thick one since it will be better when you slice it.
