In Portofino, last year, a random laneway lead to a tiny bakery where we stumbled across Pignoli.
These pine nut and honey tarts have a clean, sweet taste, and are perfect with afternoon tea.
Having stumbled across pinenuts on sale whilst shopping for Easter Sunday lunch, I knew I wanted to replicate this recipe.
But, going through the photographs of the recipe gave me pause, initially.
All looking good – the honey and sugar melting down.
Time to add the butter.
So that’s why it tastes so good.
The end result is worth it – in small slices.
