In this traditional Tuscan dessert the combination of rich pastry, delicate custard and toasted nuts makes for a special treat indeed. During our cooking courses in Tuscany, we teach you how to make the pastry to perfection. It needs some care and practise, but is well worth it! Torta della Nonna translates as the “Grandmother’s cake”.
These quantities are for a 32cm/12 inch tart pan (one with a bottom that comes out is great).
