Michele Iadarola’s Cherry Crostata – Design*Sponge

As we inch into the holiday season, I thought it would be great to present a series of recipes all month that are quick and easy to make. I am kicking it off with this family recipe for a sour cherry crostata by food lover and entrepreneur, Michele Iadarola. Michele is the founder of Especially Puglia, an artisanal food company focused on showcasing the best of Puglia, Italy. The crostata is the ubiquitous Italian dessert, present on every dessert menu in Italy, and probably one of the first sweets Italians learn to make. It is nothing more than marmalade (or sometimes sweet spreads like Nutella) spread on pie crust and covered with a lattice! But as all good pie makers (and pie eaters) know, the secret is in the crust! That is what distinguishes one crostata from another. There is no limit to the possibilities for the filling. You can use high quality store-bought marmalade, or homemade. Let us know how you fill your crostata! —Kristina
