Peaches and Cream Crostata

Peaches and Cream Crostata Recipe l

I’ve said it before, but I love the simplicity of crostatas. They are so easy to make and super versatile to match whatever you have on hand. Since my latest fruit obsession is peaches, I’ve had an abundance of them to use up. When I saw the brown sack of them sitting on the counter the other day, I knew that I needed to make another crostata.

Peaches and Cream Crostata Recipe from A Kitchen Addiction

Fresh peaches are tossed with a bit of lemon juice, sugar, cinnamon, and ginger for a lightly spiced fruit filling. A lightly sweetened layer of cream cheese sits right below the peaches to elevate the sweetness of them without overpowering them and to add a bit of creaminess to the crostata.

The crust is made with a mixture of whole wheat and white whole wheat flours. But don’t worry, you can’t tell. Olive oil is used in place of butter and adds just a hint of flavor that complements the peaches perfectly. If your summer is all about baking with fresh fruit, you’ll want to add this crostata to your menu soon!

I'm disappointed to read only comments about how a recipe looks, how it sounds, what people have or don't have on hand to make it. How about making a recipe as written and THEN submitting a review?
