Easy Dessert – Jam Crostata

This dessert is quick to pull together, doesn’t take a ton of ingredients, and makes use of something that plagues many people I know… almost-empty jam jars taking up room in the fridge! Hence, it’s the perfect dessert to whip up in a snap for a dinner party.

*Note – The images in this post are from making 2 different crostatas – one with pear conserve and one with strawberry preserves.

Jam Crostata

  • 1 ready-to-bake pie crust (flat, not one that comes in a dish)
  • 2 heaping tablespoons of full-fat ricotta, mixed with 1 tsp sugar
  • 3 heaping tablespoons of jam, any flavor
  1. Lay pie crust flat on a baking sheet.
  2. Top crust with ricotta.
  3. Spread ricotta evenly over crust, leaving about an inch at the edges
  4. Top ricotta with jam and spread jam evenly – it will mix a little with the ricotta, which is fine.
  5. Gently fold the edges of the pie crust in – don’t be a perfectionist here, it should look rustic!
  6. Bake at 375F until crust is golden brown.
  7. Let cool for at least 10 minutes.
  8. Slice into wedges and serve with ice cream.
