 Hello! Today I’d like to talk you about Nonna Nada’s secret Recipe for a wonderful and unique Pasta Frolla (Shortbread).

As you know, you can use the Pasta Frolla to prepare a countless number of different cakes, tarts and biscuits, so any type of cake you’re going to make the most important thing is the very good quality of your paste.

Ingredients for the Pasta Frolla pastry

Serves 4-6
250 gr of white flour ( better 200 gr of flour and 50 gr of potato starch)
125 gr of butter (not melted)
110 gr of sugar
2 yolks
1 spoon of water
1 spoon of extra virgin olive oil
1 pinch of salt
1 grated lemon

How to make the Pasta Frolla

Melt all quickly in a bowl making a ball, put the pasta in the fridge and let it rest, the more the better; it preserves also for some days.
Then roll out the Pasta Frolla and fill it with whatever you prefer: chocolate, marmelade, cream etc. Put in the oven at about 180 degrees for half an hour. Gorgeous!
