Why This Recipe Works

Do you need an easy summer dessert? Whether it be for the Fourth of July, a backyard BBQ, a summer potluck, or simply because, this summer fresh blueberry crostata is one of the simplest “pies” you’ll ever make.

And one I love to make when the blueberries are fresh from the vine.

While I pick and buy flats of blueberries in the summer for freezing, I’m also baking, cooking and eating fresh blueberries. Whether it be a blueberry trail mix, muffins, or as topping for granola and cereal, blueberries seem to always be in my fridge.

What is a Blueberry Crostata

Similar to a galette, a crostata is an Italian baked tart or pie, also known as coppi in Naples and sfogliate in Lombardy.

While I love to make my own crust, summer activities sometimes demand quick and easy. But if you have the time, make your own crust. If not, store bought is just fine!

  • 1 store bought pie crust or homemade

Filling

  • 1 lb blueberries about 3 cups
  • 3 tablespoons cornstarch
  • Juice and zest of 1 lemon about 1 tablespoon each
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • Pinch of salt

Egg Wash

  • 1 large egg beaten with 1 tablespoon water for egg wash
