  • Use pulsing action of food processor to process flour, cream cheese and butter until mixture is well blended and forms dough that pulls away from side of food processor container.
  • Transfer dough to work surface. Add half the basil; knead gently just until blended. Shape into ball; flatten into disk. Wrap with plastic wrap. Refrigerate 1 hour.
  • Heat oven to 425°F. Unwrap dough; place between 2 lightly floured sheets of parchment. Roll into 12-inch round. Transfer to parchment-covered baking sheet.
  • Toss blueberries and peaches with dry pudding mix, lemon juice and remaining basil; spoon onto centre of crust to within 3 inches of edge. Fold edge of crust over fruit mixture, pleating edge as necessary. (Fruit mixture in centre will remain uncovered.) Brush edge of crust with milk; sprinkle with sugar.
  • Bake 35 to 40 min. or until crust is golden brown, and fruit mixture is hot and bubbly.


Substitute blackberries for the blueberries and/or 5 apricots for the peaches.

How to Fold the Dough

Fold the edge nearest you toward the centre of crostata. Rotate the crostata and lift the adjacent piece of edge and fold toward the centre. Continue doing this until the entire edge has been folded and there are no cracks where the fruit juices could leak out.

Size Wise

Indulgent desserts can add enjoyment to a balanced diet, but remember to keep tabs on portion size.
