Pasticciotti are a favorite

This week’s special tart will be Pasticciotto. This almond custard-filled tart is made with a short crust pastry and topped with sliced almonds. It is popular in Sicily and other regions of Italy including Naples and Salento in Puglia. It’s made with different flavored custards and some are filled with sweetened ricotta.
