Plum Tart

A classic and easy to make tart to finish the Dinner Party. Very Very Good to serve with an espresso and a glass of Montenegro on the rocks.

You’ll need:
·      125 g of butter
·      1 or 2 eggs (depending on how big they are)
·      A pinch of salt
·      250 g of Flour
·      Plum Jam or any Jam and Preserve

Melt the butter and mix it with the sugar and a pinch of salt. Add the egg and finally the flour. Make a buttery and sticky dough and press it over a tart shape using your hands. Do not use a rolling pin and don’t add any more flour to work the dough otherwise it will loose its friability once it’s cooked. Leave some of the dough for the decorations. Now let the Shape and the small dough to rest in the fridge for at least 20 minutes. Spread the preserve over and decorate the tart with the remained dough. Bake it at 180°C for 30 minutes.
