Information on the Salento pitteddhe

Salento pitteddhe are tarts with homemade jam. You can find them based on quince jam, grapes, figs, with citrus jam or other. Also known as star tarts, they are filled Salento sweets perfect for festive occasions or for breakfast or an everyday snack. They are "cousins" of the perhaps less well-known Salento chinuliddre or chinuliddhre, shortcrust pastry shells which instead of having the shape of a star, are shaped like little bags.
