Try to make this nice cake, it’s fun especially in a wet Sunday afternoon. Below I’ll write the receipt for a sweet called CROSTATA, basically a pastry that can be combined with jam, crème, fruit and even with the great Nutella (for the ones not on diet!)
170 gr. of butter
300/400 gr. Of plain flower
100 gr. Of sugar
3 eggs (2 whole eggs and 1 yolk)

Ingredients for the cream:
1 yolk of egg
1 big spoon of sugar
1 glass of milk
1 spoon of flower
Vanilla flavour
Lemon juice

How to do it:

Prepare the flower leaving an empty space in the middle where the butter and the sugar will be mixed together before adding the eggs. Once the eggs have been added work the dough until obtain a soft and slightly sticky mass. Leave the dough to rest for half an hour in the fridge.

While the dough is resting in the fridge prepare the cream: mix the egg and sugar, add the milk and the flower. Add vanilla flavour and lemon and cook at low fire mixing continuously clockwise. Cook until the mixture will become thicker.

Prepare the base, putting the dough in a container. Cook the base for a 10 minutes in a pre-heated oven at 180°C. After 10 minutes put the cream on the top of the base and put the crostata back into the oven and cook for 15 mins more.

Let cool down a bit and enjoy it...It's amazing!!!

Have a look to some pictures!!!!
