Pasta frola is a wonderful dessert made with a cookie-like shortbread crust and dulce de membrillo (quince paste) filling. Pasta frola is another example of the influence of Italian food on Argentinian and Uruguayan cuisine – its name comes from the Italian word for the shortbread crust, pasta frolla, that is used to make Italian crostate (jam pies). The filling has evolved to match South American tastes: usually quince paste or dulce de leche. If you love jam, then you have to try this really easy and delicious traditional jam tart! Perfect for every time of the day; over some hot coffee or tea or as delicious sweet snack. Prepare it using any kind of jam you prefer and wake up the whole family with the amazing smell!
