There is nothing like a hot fresh baked pie to warm the heart on a cold snowy winter night. So let’s have one for tonight’s dinner dessert and let’s make it simple and easy as possible. I can remember my mother often quickly and effortlessly mixing up a fruit pie just before dinner and serving it straight out of the oven as soon as we finished the main course. I seldom remember her making double crust pies with care crimped edges. More often than not, her pies were “open faced.” I always assumed she did them this way to save time, and perhaps that was her reason. However, years later I realized she was making a crostata even though she never called it that. I loved seeing the beautiful syrupy fruit bubbling up in the center of the perfectly golden crust. Now a days crostatas are popular. So tonight, let’s make the family happy with an easy to make old-world Peach Crostata.
