Mix and blend the ingredients together before going on.
Now add the milk and the water and start to knead.

Once the dough is ready, leave it into the bowl, cover it with a rag and allow to raise for 3 hours in a warm spot.
Once the dough has doubled its size, cut it into 100 gr. Pieces, and shape them like pressed ovals.
Let them raise again for 1 hour, then brush them with egg wash and cook in the preheated oven at 170°C for 35/40 minutes.
Whip the cream until it is well mounted, and then add the remaining 100 gr. Of sugar to it.
Cut each Maritozzo in half, and fill it with whipped cream, with the help of a sac a poche.
