The gluten-free shortcrust pastry tart with jam is a delicious homemade dessert. Typical of every Italian grandmother (who will call it “CROSTATA”). This is an ideal cake to be enjoyed at breakfast, together with a cup of hot tea or a creamy cappuccino. Likewise, it is also perfect as a dessert at the end of a meal.
This tart has a flaky, flavorful layer of shortcrust pastry. Then a rich and fruity layer of your favorite jam. The options are endless!
Since the shortcrust dough includes only rice and corn flour, it is suitable for all celiac or intolerant people. As usual, I do not use any gums (like xanthan) or commercial blends for this recipe. Only naturally gluten-free flours. As for the filling, I have chosen a delicious homemade raspberry jam. But everyone can use what they prefer, even chocolate spread!
If you have to avoid corn, you can replace the corn flour with millet or buckwheat flour. On the other hand, the taste will be a little more rustic with these flours.
