Jam Crostata


·         1¾ cups flour

·         1/3 cup caster sugar

·         ¼ teaspoon salt

·         100 grams butter, diced and chilled

·         Zest of 1 lemon

·         1 egg plus 1 egg yolk

·         1-2 tablespoons chilled water

·         475 grams raspberry jam or jam of your choice

·         Egg wash made from

·         1 egg yolk mixed with 1 tablespoon water

·         1 x 30 cm pizza tin or loose bottom tart tin


1.    Put the flour, sugar and the salt in a food processor and pulse to blend.

2.    Add the butter and lemon zest and process until it resembles coarse crumbs. Beat the egg, the yolk and 1 tablespoon of the water together and add to the dough. Pulse until it just starts to come together, only adding the extra water if necessary. Tip onto the bench and gently bring together by hand to form a disc. The dough will feel quite sticky. Wrap and refrigerate until chilled.

3.    Preheat the oven to 180°C.

4.    Roll the pastry out on a lightly floured bench and line the tin. You will have extra pastry left for making the lattice strips. Roll out the remaining pastry and cut narrow strips long enough to lie right across the tin. Spread the jam evenly over the pastry and brush the edges with egg wash. Place the strips over the jam and press onto the rim of pastry then brush with egg wash. If the pastry starts getting soft, put it back in the refrigerator to firm up.

5.    Bake the crostata for 35-40 minutes or until golden and the pastry is thoroughly cooked. Set aside to cool.
