  • 250 gr. of sugar
  • 5 egg yolks

PREPARAZIONE

In a bowl put flour, egg yolks, sugar, butter pieces, salt, lemon peel, almonds and macaroons powder. Knead using the milk without working the dough too long. Line a cake pan, previously buttered and floured, with 3/4 of the dough, sprinkle with jam and cover with the remaining dough. To obtain a crispy tart, use a potato masher with large holes to cover the pie to make the dough fall into small crumbs.

Bake at 180° for 1/2 hour, then lower the oven to 140°-150° for another 15 minutes.

Grandma used jam made from muschino plums.
