Here is a summer recipe I’m sure you’ll want to try, especially once you see how easy, quick and fun it is.
This rustic crostata has all there is to love about pie. The flaky and buttery crust, just slightly crunchy and sugary at the edges. And the sweet and fruity filling exploding with drip-down-your-chin juicy peaches, and nutrient-packed cute little blueberries.
And if you are anything like me, you will want to eat your slice right off the oven with a big scoop of vanilla ice-cream on the side.
This is the perfect dessert for those of you that love pie (who doesn’t, really?!?) but find the whole process of pie-making a little overwhelming. From chooing the right pie dish, to rolling the dough. From crafting the perfect edge, to baking to the right point without burning the bottom nor the edges.
With this recipe you don’t have to worry about any of these things. Cause a rustic crostata is just a free-style and worry-free delicious pie.
Making crostata is super easy. Especially if you use a stand up mixer or food processor like I did. The dough is ready in no time. You will need to chill it in the refrigerator for about 30 minutes to make it easier to roll. No need for a pie plate, just a baking sheet and some parchment paper to make the clean up easier. Roll in a circle, top with the fruit, fold the edge and bake.
And the best part of it all… it doesn’t have to be perfect! This is the type of dessert that needs to look homemade :)
And extremely easy to eat!
