Pluot and Almond Crostata

Well, as I mentioned last week, I had a really hard time deciding what recipe to choose for Summerfest 2010 – Stonefruits! So,  I decided to feature 2 recipes – and here is the second one!! This one uses pluots although you could easily make it with apricots, plums or nectarines.  For  those of you who may not be familiar with pluots they are a cross between a plum and an apricot and come in a dizzying number of varieties  and have fanciful names like “dinosaur eggs” and “cotton candy” with colors to match!! This crostata is a great way to show off this fruit – that is if you can manage not to eat them all before making this  crostata.  This is a definite challenge in  my household despite buying bags of them – and unfortunately I can’t blame it all on my kids – I am as guilty as they are when it comes to stealing snacking on these little pieces of summer that you can hold in your hand!

I love the combination of flavors. But I really love the combination of rustic shell and gorgeously perfect slices of pluot. So breezily elegant! GREG

We love pluots in our house. This is such a nice looking Crostata & I bet it tastes great!
My addition to the stone fruit summer fest category was Peach Pie Enchiladas—I think you all ready knew that? Here is the link anyway :)

I've never heard of pluots before . . . just shows I need to expand my horizons. Looks delicious, and that's a beautiful picture!
