A crostata is a rustic tart baked without the traditional tart pan, rather, free form on a sheet pan. Last night I wanted something sweet but have been trying to eat less sugar, this pastry dough has only 1 tablespoon of sugar and the filling only 1/4 cup. The leftover piece was really good with a cup of coffee this morning.
1 1/4 cups flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon granulated sugar
1/2 cup butter (1 stick)
1-2 tablespoons COLD water
Put all the dry ingredients into the processor.
For the filling:
2 cups frozen blueberries
1 teaspoon lemon juice
Put the blueberries and sugar in a medium size heavy sauce pan.
Line a sheet pan with parchment paper. Preheat oven to 400F. Remove dough from refrigerator.
Lightly dust counter with with flour for rolling the dough.
Transfer to the parchment lined sheet pan.
Now fold the edges toward the center, pleating them as you go.
Cool, or not.
