Tarts pastry shells are truly the sweet that everyone loves. Both for the speed of its preparation and for all the combinations that suit it.

This is a very easy recipe to make at home because you really need 4 ingredients in what is made in Italy.

– Butter or margarine

What I present in this recipe will be different but very sophisticated and perfect for any filling you want to put in it.

However, before starting our recipe consider the equipment that are one of my favorites:
