Man! I am so behind on my food postings! I always make the challenges on time, but post them late. Anyways, this was the Daring Kitchen Crostata challenge. I hadn't even really known what a crostata was...perhaps a tostada? But I found out it was a fruit tart/pie. My church group was having a pre-Thanksgiving feast, so I thought it would be a perfect time to debut this dish. I spent 1 evening making the dough, and then the next evening (the night of the dinner) rolling out the dough into a pie pan, loading them up with different raspberry jam (red and black), and then laying a lattice framework over it. I baked it and excitedly took it out of the oven. We had some heavy cream in our fridge, so I whipped it up into a sweetened whipped cream. I was finally all set to head to the party! I placed the crostata and whipped cream into a roasting pan for protection and drove off.
Unfortunately, crostatas are not meant for transport across the city of San Francisco, along bumpy and hilly roads. So, my poor crostata ended up spilling over and looking like a hot mess, literally! :( Luckily, my dough held up and didn't become soggy. My friends were also so gracious and said it tasted delicious!
