It Pi day! What better way to celebrate, than with the easiest “pie” there is!
Sometimes we just don’t have time to throw together a legit “pie”. Or maybe you just don’t have a pie plate handy. Lucky for you, Galettes (or Crostatas) are like pies, without the plate and without the hassle and effort of making it look perfect.
I like to call them rustic pies, if you will, and they are SO. GOOD.
I use mixed berries for mine, but I’ve done all sorts of crazy combinations. Whatever your favorite pie is, try making it into a crostata! Whats the worst that could happen?
I made my own pie dough, but feel free to use store-bought if you’re in a pinch.
Once your dough is ready and being refrigerated, you can start making the filling, which couldn’t be easier, BTW. You basically just throw it all in a bowl and add some sugar, flour and corn starch. I used my favorite Bob’s Red Mill flour, of course!
Roll out your dough, fill em up, col dover the extra, and BAM! You’re on the way to one delicious crostata.
I like to egg wash my crust and sprinkle it with a little decorating sugar to make it look semi-pretty. But of course, its not necessary!
Here’s the recipe!
I hope you enjoy and happy Pi day!
