Fresh Raspberry Crostata Recipe
- 1/2 x batch crostata dough recipe follows all-purpose flour for dusting
- 2 Tbsp. superfine sugar plus
- 2 tsp superfine sugar
- 2 c. fresh raspberries Confectioners' sugar for dusting
- 2 c. unbleached all-purpose flour
- 1/4 c. superfine sugar
- 1/2 tsp coarse salt
- 1/2 lb very cool unsalted butter cut in 1/2" cubes
- For the Crostata Dough: Place flour, sugar, and salt in the bowl of a food processor fitted with the steel blade. Pulse to combine. Add in butter, tossing quickly with fingers to coat each cube with flour. (This will prevent cubes from sticking together, so they will combine more proportionately with flour in the next step.)
- Pulse 15 times, or possibly till butter is size of small peas. With processor running, add in 1/4 c. ice water all at once through feed tube. Process for about 10 seconds, stopping before dough becomes a solid mass. Turn onto plastic wrap, pressing dough to create a 7-inch disk. Wrap dough completely, and chill for at least 1 hour. The dough may be refrigerated up to 2 days or possibly frzn for up to 2 weeks. If frzn, defrost the dough, wrapped, at room temperature for 30 to 45 min, till it is pliable but still cool
- Heat oven to 450 degrees. On a lightly floured surface, roll dough into an 11-inch free-form circle. Transfer to a baking sheet, and sprinkle with 1 Tbsp. superfine sugar.
- Cover dough with raspberries, stem ends down, leaving a 1 1/2-inch border (start in the center, and work outward in concentric circles). Most of the berries will fit on shell in one layer; mound any extra berries in center. Sprinkle berries with remaining 5 tsp. superfine sugar.
- Lift border up and over berries to create sides of tart, letting dough drape gently over fruit. Crease or possibly fold the border every 4 to 5 inches to enclose the fruit, being careful not to mash the berries.
- Bake crostata till fruit has given off some of its juice and dough is golden brown, 20 to 25 min.
- Cold on a rack for about 10 min, dust with confectioners' sugar, and serve while still hot.
- This recipe yields 1 nine-inch tart.
