This classic pie was reinvented with pear, cinnamon, star anise and topped with a crispy golden puff pastry thats inverted and baked to perfection.
It’s a creamy, velvety, custard-like cream that serves as the main filling for tarts, pastries, layered cakes, cornetti, bomboloni (Italian croissants and doughnuts) and many other delicious desserts that you can find in Italy, normally flavoured with vanilla, lemon, chocolate or coffee.
The game-changer for homemade baking is to start making your own pastries. The shortcrust is a versatile pastry made from mainly 3 ingredients: butter, flour and eggs, but we made a version of our own that enhances the flavours and give a fun twist to this classic recipe.
