My Berry Tart

I remember trying this recipe 2 years ago see here if you missed it. The only mishap I had was that I used pie crust instead of puff pastry. Well I fixed that and now I love making this easy, simple and delicious recipe.

This time I used berries and strawberries. I was inspired to try berries because one of my favorite restaurants Carrabba's  had this delicious dessert called the berry crostata. I LOVE IT! I mean really I do! They have not brought it back this summer so I decided to make my own.

Carrabba's berry crostata

I went to the grocery and picked up my fruit and rinsed it off. 

I followed the instructions for the puff pastry which was very easy and simple. You just have to let it sit out and thaw. After that you put flour on your parchment paper and place the pastry on top. 

Put your fruit in the center (as much as you want) and add 2 teaspoons of sugar, a dash of salt and fold the pastry around the fruit.

Cook for about 20 minutes at 350 degrees. Keep your eye on it and then you have this wonderful, crisp yet soft on the inside dessert. I eat my slice with some vanilla bean ice cream. It is heaven scent. I enjoy this dessert so much and I hope you will try it and enjoy it too!

Please let me know if you do!
