hmm I wonder how it would turn out if you made a fruit compote instead of using jam so there's less sugar? A winter version might be nice with cranberry/candied citrus peel throughout... Looks like you could do a lot with this recipe, happy experimenting!

Welcome to the Daring Bakers! Glad you learned a new trick, and sorry to hear that your crostata wasn't quite how you wanted it. It's a great flavour combination, though, so I hope you get the chance to perfect it! I always want to do more of the challenges, but always run out of time. Oh well, till next month!

Congratulations on your first DB challenge! It looks great even if you weren't too taken with it. That's one of the reasons why I like DB. You try doing something for the first time, figure out what you'd do different the next time, and get tons of ideas on other variations you could do. Good luck next month!

Welcome to the DB's and congratulations on beautifully completing your first challenge! Great choice of pastry cream recipe and flavor combination (*wink* - they were the same as mine!), and your crostata looks beautiful. I highly recommend giving it another go - there is such a trial and error aspect to all of the different possibilities of this kind of recipe. I can't wait to see what December brings us!

Welcome and hello to the DB's and congrats on your very success first challenge. Well done.

Yes I think that it is always best to blind bake the shell completely before filling it makes for the best result. I'm sure you like be able to tweak it to perfect, it is very hard the first time to make it to your tastes. Excellent work on this challenge.

Cheers from Audax in Sydney Australia.


Well I'd really like to help so you can just send it to me and you can make a clean slate of it! Hahaha ...If you are looking for something more tart I've got 4 cans of cranberries I forgot to use on Thankgiving I could trade you! : )

Welcome to Daring Bakers! I hope you get to experiment more with this challenge and find the combination of baking and ingredients that satisfies your expectations. I like the heart in the center.

Welcome to the Daring Bakers - I think I will try a straight pastry cream one next time too. Yours looks great.

Je flagrante sauter sur l'occasion d'aider si vous êtes capable de me l'envoyer et que vous pourriez probablement composer un nouveau commencement de celui-ci! Je pense que je vais tenter une quinte au four bonne crème une fois suivantes aussi. Votre semble incroyable.
