Crostata

Updated: Jul 18



All purpose flour 300g + more for rolling out (about 2 ¼ cup)

Butter 150g - COLD! (about 10 tbsp)

Eggs 2 large yolks

Powdered sugar 75g (about ⅔ cup)

Vanilla beans or extract

Salt

Favorite Jam 250g (better to have some more on hand) (¾ cup)


Sift together the flour and powdered sugar into a large bowl.  Cut your dough into tbsp sized chunks and squeeze in the dough until you have a shaggy dough with no big chunks of butter left. Using a spatula mix in your two egg yolks and in a pinch of our salt and vanilla if you like. Using your hands combine this dough into a solid mass. Wrap in plastic wrap and chill in the fridge for a 30 minutes. Roll your chilled dough into a large circle that is 1/8 inch thick and top with jam or preserves, crimping the edges as you like. 

Bake at 350 for 30-40 minutes until your crust begins to brown.
