It seems that the merit of the invention of this delicious cake is to be attributed to a nun from the convent of S. Gregorio Armeno. This dessert of “poor” origin had a lot of luck throughout history, so much that it even reached the tables of the nobles before getting to the court of the Bourbons. It is said that it was the only dessert capable of making Queen Maria Theresa of Austria smile, wife of King Ferdinand II of Bourbon, nicknamed “the Queen who never smiles”. Since then the success of the tart has produced countless variations even if the real undisputed protagonist of this dessert will always be the short pastry.
