Pistachio custard tart
Similar in texture to a classic rich French custard tart, this version has the same sweetcrust pastry case, but the filling has a delicious pistachio flavour, rather than the normal vanilla.

Classic italian recipe (the name means "pull me up" or more poetically, "take me up to the sky"). It's similar to a charlotte in its structure: layers of flavoured biscuits between layers of smooth cream.
