Your crostata looks fabulous! What a great idea! I, too, forgot to put in the breadcrumbs! Mighty tasty pie though!

Wow that really looks amazing! You are right about the crust, I weighed it because I wanted to divide it equally and it was almost a kilo :-)

That is just about the most gorgeous looking blueberry pie I’ve ever seen. I am so making this recipe this summer and I’ve already flagged my book.

Nice job on the crostata. I bet the cream cheese made the crust just divine!

Okay so I admit I always look at the picture before reading the post. My first thought was oh, no, how sad what happened to her pie. It is so flat….well no wonder…duh! Looks great and what a great sub on the cream cheese.

Fried pie. I think you may have found the new hot fair food…

I’m going to try this dough with cream cheese next time… thanks for that inspiration.

A crostata is a great idea, and so is the cream cheese. I love a cream cheese crust. It looks just beautiful! Great job!

I love oozing filling. Your pictures look amazing! I agree about making half a pie.. with all that shortening and butter, it will probably take a while to burn it off!

A Blueberry Crostada – how fantastic! It looks ready to eat straight from the computer screen. I also forgot the crumbs and my pie was a bit too liquid but it still tasted good.

Shari said in July 9th, 2008 at 8:44 pm

I’m glad to hear the filling wasn’t runny without the breadcrumbs. And your substitution of cream cheese instead of shortening is a great idea!

I think that cream cheese was a brilliant substitution and my mouth is watering at the thought of how rich and yummy it must have tasted!

Mmmmm, your filling came out such a pretty color. Great job and good thinking… cutting it in half. It was dangerous having a whole pie in the house!
