Crostata di frutta (also known as a fruit tart) is probably one of my favorite desserts of all time! Fruit tart is a perfect dessert for any occasion. It is refreshing, creamy, sweet, and crunchy at the same time, and you can prepare it in various shapes.
Make a wreath (like shown here) for the holidays, a heart shape for Valentine’s day, a number shape for a birthday party, and a simple round tart whenever you need a delicious and quick dessert. The best part of fruit tart is garnishing; you can enrich the taste and the look of the tart with fresh fruit, meringues, macarons, herbs, marshmallows, or chocolate.

Crostata di Frutta Recipe
Crostata di Frutta is made with a pastafrola dough that is baked blind (meaning with no filling in it), then afterward is filled with pastry cream and fruit. We love filling it with berries, but feel free to use any fruit you happen to have on hand!
