The tart

Take the bigger part of the dough and place on a piece of baking paper. Roll out into a 22 cm circle. Cut off the excess dough with a cooking ring or with the side part of the split mold.

If the dough has become too soft, refrigerate it in the refrigerator for 15-20 minutes with the mold.
