Yes I too love the Crostata; there are many. You can add nuttella for the kids. It's always a hit. I've made the crostata with pasta frolla that is absoletly to drool for. And I found that a really great plum or rasberry or cherry jam made in Italy works best there seems to be less sugar.

OOoh this looks awesome, I think from reading your description of a perfect crostata that I would be in your camp for sure :)

what excuse can I think up too make this? hmmm

How about SHF? grin


Martina, nutella makes a killer crostata, yet I find it can be a tad overpowering so I prefer doing these in individual protions so to get more crust to filling ratio. I must admit I had never noticed the difference in sugar in Italian jams but I'll give it a try next time... a head to head crostata tasting session!

Clare, Jarrett is right SHF is just the perfect occasion!


Yummy...it's been a bunch of time since my last crostata. I have to remedy :-)


i had found a small italian cook book w/a diff dough for the crostata it goes...1 cup flour, 2 tbs sugar, 1 stick btter, 1/2 tsp salt & 2 Tbs cold water & zest of a lemon. then i just chop up apples, wallnuts stir in cinnamon, cloves & butter for filling. simple &tastes great.
