The dough of the base is similar to that of the FRESH BLUEBERRY TART (The blueberry pie American) , where I had however used a hard wheat semola for the base. And that of the LIGHT STRAWBERRY TART. It contains no sugar but a pinch of salt. If you want a dough a little’ sweeter, you can add 25-30 grams of granulated sugar. They will be enough.
