    Preheat oven to 190° C (375° F).
    Line your tart pan with baking parchment.
    Roll out pastry and pat it into the tart pan using your flour-dipped fingers.

    Prick pastry bottom with a fork and crumble amaretti cookies on its surface.
    Arrange all berries, well aligned, side by side, as you can see on the photo.
    Dredge with sugar and bake until dough is golden, 20 to 25 minutes.

  • - The greatest objection that some people make is that when you eat a cake it should be done very well with all its sugar and fat. Very true ... provided that such a cake is rarely done. Certainly not every week ;))
