Breakfast Tarts – Crostatine da Colazione

Music: I Don’t Like Mondays, The Boomtown Rats. If there is something positive about Mondays is that I can get my hands on cakes, biscuits … I made during the weekend. These little tarts keep up to one week, they can be filled with anything you like (from yogurt+granola to home-made jam, from preserved fruit to chocolate spread) and will make you run into the kitchen as the alarm starts ringing. And, most importantly, they will make you love Mondays.


310 gr flour

2 1/2 tsp baking powder

1 pinch salt

200 gr butter

320 gr hazelnut chocolate spread (I used this one here)

100 gr brown sugar

2 big eggs

2 Tsb milk

greek yogurt

home-made granola (recipe here)

Cream together butter, chocolate spread and sugar. In another bowl, mix flour, baking powder and salt. Add the butter mixture to the dry ingredients. Place in the fridge 1 hour, then lay the dough and cover a few tart moulds. Bake at 190° C for about 15 minutes, then let cool completely. Serve with greek yogurt and granola or with anything you like.
