Peach Jam Crostata

Serves: 8 | Cooking Time: 30 min | Preparation: 30 min | Medium

250g plain flour
125g sugar
125g butter
1 egg, whole
1 egg yolk
juice of ½ lemon
pinch of salt
splash of vanilla essence 
350g Solefrutta Peach Jam 

1. Preheat oven to 220°C.
2. In a large bowl, mix flour, sugar, butter, one whole egg, one egg yolk, lemon juice, salt, and vanilla essence.
3. On a floured surface, form a dough by working the mixture with your hands. 
4. Place the dough in a container, and cover with a tea towel. Refrigerate for 30 minutes.
5. Take 3/4 of the dough and roll into a circle large enough to fill tart tin.
6. Press the rolled dough into the tin. With a fork, pierce the bottom of the dough several times to keep the dough from puffing up during baking.
