A crostata or galette, depending on where you are from is a rustic dessert. It consists of pie dough wrapped around fresh fruit and baked to delicious goodness.
In my book and in my head, I consider blueberry crostata a “healthy” dessert, since it is mostly fruit, right? Right! You can use a variety of fruits such as peaches, apples, pears or blackberries. Remember, a recipe is just a suggestion! I love making blueberry crostata because without being a good baker I was successful the very first time! YAY.
Blueberries are one of my favorite fruits. I eat them almost every day, probably about 1/2 cup a day. Yes, I keep the blueberry growers in business. Even in the wintertime when they become a bit expensive, I bite the bullet and buy them. The way I look at it is I am doing something good for my health. Blueberries contain antioxidants which are helpful in reducing the risk of some types of cancer. This time of year, however, they are starting to become a bit expensive. Something to consider also, studies have shown that even after being frozen, blueberries do not lose much of their nutritional value.
