It ain’t pie…

September 7, 2014

but it’s close…it’s Crostata. A little late summer fruit and a single crust and you can have this rustic dessert complete…start to finish… within an hour. To keep it extra simple use a prepared crust to hold the nectarines or peaches, baking it in a pie dish instead of a flat baking tray. I’m not generally a fan of pie a la mode but my arm could be twisted here if there was some ginger ice cream involved.
