Blueberry Cream Cheese Crostata

Blueberry Cream Cheese Crostata Recipe l

When I pulled this blueberry cream cheese crostata from the oven, I wondered again why I don’t make these more often.

They are so easy to make and take hardly any time to bake. I really need to give them a more prominent place in our dessert rotation, especially with all of the fresh berries that are available right now.

I’m already planning the filling for my next crostata!

Blueberry Cream Cheese Crostata Recipe l

This crostata is a simple combination of fresh blueberries and cream cheese.

The lightly sweetened cream cheese layer elevates the natural sweetness of the blueberries without overpowering the fruit.

Sugar and lemon juice mix with the blueberries to form the juicy filling. Cinnamon and nutmeg are sprinkled in to add a bit of warm spice to the dessert.

The crust is half whole wheat flour and uses olive oil instead of shortening or butter. Don’t worry, it doesn’t taste healthy! The crust is still soft and flaky.

Plus, if you don’t have enough blueberries on hand, you can easily substitute different types of berries. So, if you are looking for a way to use the abundance of berries in your house, this crostata is the perfect use for them!
