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

Mixed Berry Crostata

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.

Tip

Don't make the dough without first tossing together the butter and flour and freezing for 10 minutes. Combining the two before adding to the food processor helps prevent clumping and ensures more even butter distribution while processing, and thorough chilling guarantees the butter won't become too soft during processing. Don't use frozen berries; they will turn soft and mushy with baking.
