Wilden.herbals with Maria Abbate Paolo
Maria Abbate Paolo, pastry chef from Polignano a Mare, loves to play with ingredients and seasons. His approach is revolutionary, because it tends to experiment, test and follow the flow of intuitions and curiosities. For Wilden.herbals, Maria Abbate Paolo created a morning shortbread, using Remedium n.0 – Morning as the base for the infusion. The result is a fragrant and tasty biscuit, simple like good homemade things. Fragrant as a gentle awakening.
“I decided to create a simple recipe that could be easily replicated. It is a shortbread, the main product with which we accompany Wilden infusions here: a simple biscuit, ideal to accentuate the aroma of Remedia and live a 360 ° taste experience. The chosen Remedium – I used the Morning – can be left to infuse in the cream and then removed or crumbled directly into the dough, according to the preferences of each.”
300 g flour
150 g butter
100 g brown sugar
30 g egg yolk
40 g cream
1 Remedium n.0 – Morning teabag
First mix the flour and butter until a sandy mixture is obtained. Then add the sugar and then the liquids, cream and yolks. Finally, add a packet of Remedium n.0 -Morning. If you do not like the pieces of whole herbs, you can put the infusion in the cream for a few hours and filter it before using it.
Then rest the dough for at least 3 hours in the refrigerator, roll it out with a rolling pin and with the help of a mold make the biscuits. Bake at 160 degrees for 10/15 minutes.
