Now, I know I started this blog by boldly stately that it would NOT be a food blog because I am NOT a food person, etc., etc. And Yet...somehow I keep posting about food...why is this? I've decided that it's just inevitable...FOOD HAPPENS!
And if it's good food, why not take a picture of it and share the recipe on your blog, eh? Well, why not?
So, here we are with another food post...this time it's:
ROBERTA'S JAM TORTE
Crostata di Marmellata di Roberta
250 grams flour
100 grams sugar
100 grams margarine (or softened butter!)
1 packet of Pan degli Angeli yeast (or 1/2 tbsp. baking soda)
Mix all your ingredients together. I start mixing with a wooden spoon, but end up working the dough with my hands. It's a rather crumbly dough so keep working it until it all sticks together. Set aside a bit more than a third of the dough. The larger portion of dough is your bottom crust and you should push it around with your fingers until it covers the bottom of your torte dish. Spread a layer of your favorite jam over the bottom crust, taking care to leave the edges un-jammed! Roll out the remaining portion of dough and cut strips to crisscross across the jam. Bake at 180° C (or 375° F) until lightly browned.
