COOKING VIDEO: Make Raspberry Chocolate Almond Crostata


What’s a crostata, you ask? It’s Italian for a pie or tart with a rustic-style crust. Invented by some clever baker before the advent of the pie pan, the filling is placed in the center of a circle of dough. The edges of the dough are folded up and over the filling to hold it in.

It’s not as fancy as a pinched pie crust that creates a high “ruffle” around the pie; but today, this casual technique looks charming.

This week’s cooking video shows you how to make a Raspberry Chocolate Almond Crostata. It’s perfect for holiday entertaining: Try it instead of your regular favorite pie.
