Put into the mixer the cake flour with 60g (2,10oz) of sugar, butter (cut into small pieces) and 1 pinch of salt. Add 2 egg yolks and 2/3 tablespoons of ice water (1), then start the mixer and mix for few seconds, until forming a ball with the dough (2). Take the dough and wrap it in cling film, then place it in the refrigerator to rest for 2 hours (3).

Roll out the dough (flattening it with your hands and fingers) in a tart pan (the pan should be greased and floured).

One trick to roll out the dough: cut the dough into slices and evenly distribute the slices over the entire surface of the pan. Then roll it out with your fingers.

The edge of the tart should be as high as 1 finger. With the tines of a fork, model and flatten evenly around the edge (4).

Put a baking paper sheet over the tart and fill the pastry shell with dried beans (5). Cook in the oven (preheated 180°/350F) for 15 minutes. Then remove sheet and beans and bake for 5 minutes (6). Let cool, then remove the tart from the pan, placing it on a serving dish.

For the cream

I love all red things, reading novels, Milan football team, spaghetti and dark chocolate. I have wonderful memories of my grandmother who Involved me in the kitchen from a very early age. She was kind and patient and generous with her time. Some of my favorite childhood memories involve being in the kitchen with her while she was cooking Risotto alla Milanese or Polenta. And the bonus of it was that she always made me taste everything.
