Blackberry Orange Crostata

This Blackberry Orange Crostata will blow your mind.

Blackberry orange crostata is a deliciously simple dessert that is full of texture and freshness. Crostata is just pie crust with a fruity filling so there isn’t much that can go wrong. The goal is a crispy, buttery crust rolled out into a circle that is thick enough to hold in all the goodness yet thin enough to deliver a series of flaky bites. There is something so special about using fresh fruit in dessert. As their juices and aromatic oils release, flavor complexity is developed and every inch is infused with all that blackberries and orange have to offer. Even better is the thick syrup the fruit and sugar form inside the crust. It oozes out and caramelizes in some areas making the pastry even more delectable.

Blackberry Orange Crostata In Post

Ingredients:

Serves 4

The crust:

  • 1 ¼ cups all-purpose flour, plus extra for dusting
  • ½ cup chilled butter, cut into cubes
  • 4 tablespoons ice water
  • 1 tablespoon granulated sugar
  • ½ teaspoon salt

The filling:

  • 1 cup fresh blackberries
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 tablespoons fresh orange juice
  • 1 teaspoon fresh orange zest
  • Orange peel

Directions:

  1. Add the flour to the bowl of your food processor with the granulated sugar and salt.
  2. Pulse until well combined.
  3. Use the pulse button as you add the butter. The goal is a crumbly texture.
  4. Add the ice water 1 tablespoon at a time as you pulse. You want a dough that just starts to clump together.
  5. Turn the dough out onto your counter (line the counter with parchment if you wish) and gather the dough into a ball.
  6. Flatten it slightly and cover with plastic wrap.
  7. Refrigerate the dough for a minimum of 30 minutes or until firm.
  8. Preheat your oven to 400 degrees F.
  9. Line a baking sheet with parchment.
  10. Roll your dough into an 11-inch circle on a lightly floured surface.
  11. Transfer to your baking sheet.
  12. Toss the blackberries, sugar, orange juice and orange zest in a bowl.
  13. Spoon in the center of the crust and top with the orange peel.
  14. Begin folding the crust into the center of the pastry while allowing it to pleat. You want about a 3-inch border.
  15. Place into the oven and bake for 35 minutes or until the crust is golden and the filling is bubbly and thick.
  16. Remove from the oven and serve warm.
