I love fresh pastries and a warm from the oven blueberry peach crostata always puts a smile on my face.
I’m not an exceptional baker, but it’s something that I love to do (sometimes I think mostly because I love to eat), there’s something calming about baking.
Baking demands your full attention, and if you don’t give it, the results can be less than pleasing. But at the same time, baking soothes the soul, it’s never really like work to me, and I think that’s why I enjoy it so much. It feels more like recess, and I get to go outside and play. Life is suddenly so much better, even more so when the oven timer goes off…..
I’ve had a few of those days lately, so Sunday morning I got down the flour, chilled the butter, peeled the peaches and made some delicious little crostata’s…..sigh, and guess what…….life was suddenly so much better.
Peaches are still in season and couldn’t be better, so juicy and so sweet, I think I ate half of everything I peeled while making these sweet little pies. And what goes better with peaches than fresh plump blueberries, bursting with flavor…..sigh All I needed was some homemade whipped cream to make this the perfect dessert or in my case breakfast! My morning paper, a cup of good coffee and a warm blueberry peach crostata…..life doesn’t get much better than that (well at least at my age).
