CROSTATA - JAM TART
1 3/4 sticks butter, softened (14 oz.)
1/2 cup sugar
1 egg + 1 egg yolk
2 1/4 cups flour
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon almond extract
8 oz. jam (I used seedless raspberry)
Preheat oven to 350*.
Beat together softened butter and sugar.
Add eggs and mix all to form soft dough.
Add flour, salt and extracts to dough mixture and combine well.
Press 2/3 dough into bottom and up sides of a 9" or 10" tart pan or pie pan.
Spoon jam over dough and gently spread to cover bottom crust layer.
Make ropes with remaining dough and arrange as lattice over jam layer.
Bake at 350* about 40 - 45 minutes, until golden brown.
Cool in pan on rack.
If desired, remove tart from pan and dust with powdered sugar before serving.
