I grew up eating tons of slices of this cake, i love it !!! It remember me my winter days skiing and going to the bakery for a slice of cake and a hot chocolate … sweet memories !
Today i’ve baked 2 crostate: one small and one big, the small one is for tomorrow breakfast and the big one is for the dinner of tonight, we have friends coming over our home. I hope they will like it !!!
Here the recipe:
Walnut and Honey Tart
For the sweet pastry crust:
150 gr Butter
1 Egg + 2 Yolk
For the filling:
300gr Honey ( normally wildflower honey but also Acacia honey or any kind of sweet and light honey)
300gr Walnut (without shell and chopped)
Put the flour on the table and prepare a hole in it, put sugar, soft butter, egg and yolk in the hole and knead by hand. When the dough is ready, form a ball and leave it, covered, in the fridge for 20 minutes. Mix chopped walnut with honey. Take the dough from the fridge, flatten 2/3 of it with a rolling pin and place it into a baking pan. Put the filling in the pastry and cover it with the rest of dough already flatten. Put in the oven 200°C for 25minutes. Pay attention: press well the edge of the pastry top on the edge of the pastry bottom or the filling honey comes out during baking.
