Italian shortcrust pastry is a slightly richer, softer pastry that will melt in your mouth! It is made with an extra egg yolk and a teaspoon of baking powder. Use for sweet tarts and fill with pastry cream, jam or Nutella® as the Italians do!
Use the pastry for any dessert recipe that calls for shortcrust pastry, or line a tart tin with the pastry and spread a layer of jam or Nutella® over the base. Bake for 30 minutes until crisp and golden.
