I leave you to the Gluten free pasticciotto recipe filled with lemon and blueberry cream.

Preheat the oven to 180 degrees.
Prepare the shortcrust pastry; put all the ingredients except water, in the mixer or in a bowl, use the leaf hook. Start working the dough and slowly pour in the water. When the dough is compact, form a ball, wrap in cling film and let it rest in the fridge for 30-40 minutes. Meanwhile, prepare the two creams.

For the lemon cream; whip the egg yolk with the honey, when it is frothy, pour the starch and continue stirring. Pour the milk, vanilla and grated lemon zest into a saucepan, simmer for a few minutes and then pour everything into the bowl. Stir and bring back to the heat, with the help of a whisk, stir the cream continuously until it has completely set. When it is ready, transfer it to a bowl and cover with cling film.

While to prepare the blueberry cream, you just need to add the blueberries in a saucepan with a little water and let them soften. When they are ready, mash with a fork and set aside.

Take back the shortcrust pastry, roll it out on a sheet of baking paper and cut out 5/6 circles of 10 cm, help yourself with a pastry bowl. Oil a large mold for molds with coconut oil, roll out the pastry circle inside and pour in the creams. First add the lemon cream and then the blueberry cream in the center. With the leftover shortcrust pastry, form smaller circles and cover. Bake in the oven at 170 degrees for 30 minutes.
After the cooking time, let them rest in the oven for 10 minutes and then take them out of the oven. Before cutting them, let them cool completely and then serve your Gluten free Pasticciotti!
