Classic Argentinian Rogel

  • 400 g flour
  • 1 egg
  • 8 egg yokes
  • 2 table spoons alcohol
  • 2 table spoons water
  • 2 table spoons sugar
  • 50 g soft butter
  • 500 g Dulce de Leche
  • 4 egg whites
  • 8 table spoons sugar

Place the flour in a large bowl and make a hole in the middle, for the egg, egg yokes, butter, water, sugar and alcohol. Mix together carefully until you get a smooth dough. Cover the bowl with cling film and leave to rest for 30 minutes at room temperature. Divide the dough into 10 pieces and stretch each one as thinly as possible so that you have circles about 30 cm in diameter. Bake in a warm (180°C) oven until golden. Allow to cool.

Cover each disk with Dulce de Leche and stack the layers on top of each other. Make a stiff meringue mixture with the egg whites and the sugar and use this to cover the tart. Bake in a hot preheated oven (220°C) until the meringue begins to brown, about 10 minutes.

Dulce de Leche is delicious with summer fruits as well as oranges and lemons.
