Raspberry & Blackberry Crostata


Summer's last hurrah is this weekend.  There are a few things that I'm totally over this summer (like 95 degree days), but the abundance of local berries is not one of them.   I'm re-sharing this favorite fromSet years ago.  Have a great weekend : )


I always love it when someone tells me they use one of my recipes all of the time.  I especially love it when that person is my Mom.  Since I am the one usually calling her - "what seasonings do you put in your chili?" or "do you use dry active yeast when you make cinnamon rolls?" - it is nice when I get a call from her... "Do you think I could do blackberries and raspberries in the crostata instead of pear raspberry?"  Why yes, yes I do!

Last weekend my Mom and Jill put together this crostata together for our family dinner.  My brother asked, "What is this, a pile of pie?"  Hum, interesting name... but I think we'll stick with crostata or galette or flat pie (ala pioneer woman).  One this is for sure - it is such an easy dessert to make and it is just as delicious as any pie.    

Raspberry & Blackberry Crostata
serves 4


1 large pie dough (hers is homemade, larger than a normal store-bought crust)
2 cups of blackberries
2 cups of raspberries
3/4 cup of sugar (or more to taste)
3 tablespoons of flour
1 tablespoon of orange juice
1 tablespoon of butter, cut into pieces
.........
1 egg
1 tablespoon of sugar

In a bowl, mix blackberries and raspberries with flour, sugar and orange juice.

Roll out pie dough into a 12-14 inch circle.  Pile blackberries and raspberries into the center.  Dot with butter.  Fold up the sides of the dough.  Create an egg wash by beating 1 egg, then brushing it on the pastry.  Sprinkle 1 tablespoon of sugar over the dough.  Bake at 425 for 20-25 minutes.

  2. I'm new to your blog and have been admiring it. Like the above comment I love the napkin. A friend and I enjoy mongramming etc. I think this will be a great idea for her Christmas present. I pinned it so I can refer back. Thanks so much for the great ideas!

    You may want to check your editing. In the ingredients, you've listed: "2 cups of blackberries, peeled and large diced." As far as I know, you cannot peel a blackberry. Otherwise I'm looking forward to making this dessert.

    The pie looks great, but where did you get those napkins!
