Little pies with jam (x6)

Ingredients (for 6 little pies):

🌀200 g flour
🌀80 g cold butter 
🌀120 gr sugar
🌀1 egg
🌀1 egg yolk
🌀a pinch of salt
🌀The zest of 1 lemon
🌀6 little pie cake tins
apricot jam

In a bowl beat slightly sugar & eggs, add a pinch of salt and the lemon zest. In another bowl, hand mix flour & butter (previously diced) until it becomes grainy. Pour the liquid part into the solid part and keep on mixing. Put the dough on your counter and work it with the palm of your hands. Use some extra flour if the mix is too sticky. Continue kneading until the dough looks smooth and homogeneous. Wrap it in cling film and let it rest for 30 minutes in the fridge. After 30’, spread some flour on your counter and roll the dough out with a pizza roller until 2 or 3 mm thick. Rub some butter in the 6 small pie tins and sprinkle some flour on top. Split the dough into 6 parts and lay each of it into its tin. Fill each little pie with your favourite jam. Use the leftover dough to make stripes to lay over the jam. Cook the little pies in a preheated oven for 20 minutes at 180 °C

Tips:
Choose your favourite jam. 
If you are a fruit lover, skip the extra strips of dough on top and add some fresh fruit! Add it only in the last 10 minutes of cooking.
