  • Cook the artichokes in boiling water with the juice of a half lemon. Drain and mix with the heavy cream to create a paste (puree). Season with salt and pepper and reserve.

  • Bake in the oven at 180ºC (325ºF) for 40 minutes.
  • While hot spread the olive oil with a brush, add salt and pepper and enjoy.

Easy Pie Crust Method:

  • Cut the soft butter in small cubes and add it to flour. Mix well until you got something who look like sand.
  • Add the egg and the water, the salt and sugar and mix gently until all ingredients make a nice ball. Don’t knead too much. Reserve in the fridge at least one hour before you use it. NOTE: the dough keeps well up to 2 months in the freezer.
