Crostata with cherries – a step-by-step recipe with a photo on Povar.ru

Cooking description:

Lovers of shortcrust pastry will love the crostat. Juicy cherry filling with crunchy shortbread dough. If you want the dough to soften, place the crostat in a saucepan with a lid. Preparing the cake is very simple and quick. Cherries work fresh or frozen. The cherry filling must be prepared with a starch or agar thickener. If you just put cherries with sugar on the dough, then during the baking process they will release a lot of juice and the crostat will look ugly. Delicious pastries, I recommend!
