I have been trying out some new dessert recipes in preparation for a belated birthday dinner for a very special lady who someday will be my daughter-in-law. I found this recipe for a Pear Crostata, an Italian baked tart or pie, in the Wall Street Journal. The WSJ is business-focused, but I also read the personal journal section which is lifestyle-focused for the excellent science, health and wellness information and interesting recipes.
This crostata was delish! I made a few tweaks which I do with most recipes I try or regularly make. I added a little dried fruit to the pears along with a chocolate sauce I had been wanting to try, drizzled on top once I pulled it out of the oven. I also used a store-bought rolled pie crust. Adding a scoop of vanilla frozen yogurt to would be another yummy addition.
