Crostata Jam/Nutella Pie

This is an Italian favourite! Try it out for yourself!

  • 3 eggs
  • 100gr of sugar
  • 100gr of butter at room temperature
  • 300-320 gr of flour
  • 2 tsp of baking powder
  • 200g of jam (or Nutella if you prefer)


  1. Beat the eggs in a bowl, then add the sugar and mix until creamy.
  2. Little by little, add flour. Next mix in butter.
  3. In a final step, add baking powder and keep on mixing very well.
  4. Grease your mold (32cm) and sprinkle it with a little flour. Roll out one part of the dough and place it into the mold. With the remaining part, you will decorate the top of the crostata.
  5. Spread 200gr of jam or Nutella on top of the dough.
  6. Take the leftover dough, roll it out and cut into strips of equal width to decorate the crostata – if you like, you can also decorate using shapes such as stars. Put on top of the spread out jam/Nutella.
  7. Bake in a preheated (180°) oven for 30 minutes.

The crostata is best served with some powdered sugar on top!
