Soft and crumbly, sweet shortcrust pastry, pasta frolla in Italian, is the base of many cakes and cookie recipes.
 




Ingredients for 4 people


7 oz Italian "00" flour or all-purpose flour

Using a spoon, cream the sugar and butter.

Once you have a grainy dough, add the eggs and grated lemon peel.

3
Continue kneading the dough, gradually incorporating the sifted flour and a pinch of salt.

Knead the dough until smooth and uniform. Add more flour if the dough is too sticky.

Carefully cover in plastic wrap and let dough rest for at least two hours in the fridge before use.
