How


Lay the flour on a board in a vulcano shape. Create a hole in the centre and fill it with the sugar, salt, lemon zest olive oil and eggs. Slice the butter in fine cuts and form a ring around the vulcano hole.

Use your hands to mix the ingredients until the pastry comes together into a smooth, elastic ball.

However, the most important thing when making it is not to overwork the dough when you knead. Otherwise, you will end up with a hard dough that’s difficult to roll out.

Let it rest in the fridge for at least 30 minutes.

After the dough has rested, preheat the oven to 180° C.

Divide the dough into two pieces, one slightly larger than the other. Roll this larger one out to about 3 – 4 mm thickness to cover your pie dish.

Roll out the rest of the pastry and with a knife, cut long strips about 2 centimeters wide. Roll the top of the strips into brown sugar.

Fill the pie with jam and criss-cross your lattice strips over the top.

Bake at 180° C for about 25 minutes, or until the pastry is golden brown and the jam bubbling.

Serve at room temperature.
