Crostata con la Crema with Lemon Curd

Crostata con la Crema with Lemon Curd

The 2010 November Daring Bakers’ challenge was hosted by Simona of briciole. She chose to challenge Daring Bakers’ to make pasta frolla for a crostata. She used her own experience as a source, as well as information from Pellegrino Artusi’s Science in the Kitchen and the Art of Eating Well.

This may not come as a surprise to any of my readers, but my favorite part of Thanksgiving is the dessert/pie. It’s so hard to narrow it down to just one kind of pie, so this year I made three pies for nine of us. My husband loves pumpkin, my daughter requested Cranberry Apple Streusel and for my mom, who loved lemon desserts I made this month’s Daring Baker’s challenge a Crostata and topped it with lemon curd.

My mom was so pleased that I made lemon “pie” for her because “I know she loves lemon!” I miss you mom!
