NOTHING IS BETTER THAN...

... PLAYING IN THE KITCHEN.


MARY AND GREG PLAYED IN MANY WAYS....


..AND THEIR GAMES WERE REALLY SERIOUS...





AS THEY REQUIRED ATTENTION AND PRECISION.




THE EFFORTS BROUGHT TO A DELICIOUS MEAL


                                                        WITH AN EXCELLENT END.


                                                                    RICOTTA TART
 


Ingredients:
For the pastry:
125 gr butter, softened
125 gr sugar
2 whole eggs
300 gr flour
grated lemon zest
1tea spoon baking powder
a pinch of salt
Knead quickly all the ingredients: make a ring with the flour on the table surface, put all the ingredients in the middle and mix directly by hands. Let the pastry to rest half hour.

For the stuffing:
500 gr ricotta
100 gr sugar
100 gr dark chocolate, chopped
1grated orange zest
2 eggs, separated
a little liqueur (optional)

For assembling:
Butter and sprinkle with flour a round baking pan of 30 cm diameter. Spread upon it it pastry, pay attention to rice the borders and giving a “waved” shape to them. Pierce the bottom with a fork. Pour the  filling upon.
