​Fresh berries and free-form crostata make an easier-than-pie dessert​

Mixed Berry Crostata

50 minutes plus resting and cooling

This summery dessert features lightly sweetened fresh berries encased in flaky, buttery pastry. The crostata is baked free form without a pie plate or tart pan so shaping the dough is simple (no pan to fuss with) and its look is rustic. We particularly liked a mix of three berries—1 cup each of raspberries, blueberries and blackberries—but if you like, use just one or two types. Serve warm or at room temperature with lightly sweetened whipped cream or ice cream.
