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!
