This crostata recipe is my grandmother’s.

If you have good, hundreds or thousands of time tested from scratch dough recipe, you are on the right path! Whatever you make using it: winner it is. You may combine this crostata with other filling, of course. It depends on your preferences. Our choice is Homemade Fig Jam . It is thick enough to cut sharp slices once your Italian pie is cooled.

 

What can I use instead of fig jam?

Dried apricots are soft and have a sweet taste that is close to figs and with a slightly salty taste. Therefore, apricot jam has a taste similar to fig jam. What’s more, apricot jam serves as a good substitute in place of fig jam and in recipes and most notably in baking says Cookgem  . You will also find other great substitutes there.

 

 

How to make this fig jam crostata Italian way?

It is an easy recipe! You just combine flour, baking powder, sugar, butter, sour cream, egg yolks, and pinch of salt on flat clean working surface. You do it with your both hands, quickly. It helps your crust become flaky once baked. Depending on how dry your flour is, you may need to add 1 tablespoon of milk. That’s exactly what happened to me, and I mentioned it in recipe details below.

After you separate 1/3 of your dough for the lattice cover and lave aside, roll the dough for the base, and place it in your tart shell. Then, cut the stripes for the lattice. Spread the jam, cover with strips and bake.

To avoid any confusion, let me say I did not use parchment paper. Just simply spray your baking dish with vegetable oil or use some butter!
