How to make the bergamot jam pie

Make the short pastry according to the traditional recipe, seasoning it with the zest of a bergamot and let it rest for at least an hour. Then roll out the dough on a floured pastry board, until it is 5 mm thick. Use it to cover the bottom and edges of a non-stick mold of 22 cm diameter.

Fill the dough with the jam, leveling it evenly. Roll out the leftover short pastry and with a notched wheel cut out strips of one cm. Form a grid with the short pastry strips, alternating them regularly.
Cook the bergamot jam tart in a preheated oven at 180° for about 40 minutes. Remove from the oven, let cool and serve it for breakfast, as a snack or as a dessert. Enjoy your meal!
