Italian Crostata Pie

Doug
Crust:    I liked the crust good texture and taste.
Filling:  The filling was fantastic I would use it in a dessert bar form because of                             the  thickness.
Overall:    5   Very good,  on all points.
It was just the right amount any more would be too rich.

Oh my this pie. It is so good that I ate all of mine and part of the mailman’s. I want more of this and give this pie a 5 5 5 5.

Jennifer
Crust:    It  was great flavor but a little heavy.  More like a cookie texture.
Filling:  It had a good chocolate taste, not too sweet, thick texture and good portion                   of chocolate to the crust. However, chocolate is not my favorite flavor so the                   less sweet it is the better for me.
Overall:  4   mmm really good

The pie was delicious 🍰🍰🍰🍰……,
Crust:    The crust is short of sweetness a little bit and a bit crunchy  ( I prefer a softer                 than crisp) or if it was kneaded with a little amount of butter.
Filling:   The filling was a little rich in sweetness. It taste of chocolate or nutella or                       maybe if I  did not need much it  whipped cream.
It  will be a 99.9% grade of  Deliciously made in MOM’S kitchen..Pie…

Mike
Crust:     This crust is like a delicious crispy sugar cookie
Filling:    5 Nutella filling, oh my on the filling
Overall:   4 It was very good; but I love Nutella so much that you could put it on a rye                   cracker and I’d love it.

Robyn
Crust: 5
Filling: 4
Overall flavor: 4
Chocolate lovers will want to swan dive into this heavenly creation. I usually don’t like pie crusts but this one is excellent. Loved the sprinkling of sugar on the crust. Pie only about an inch thick crust and all. Excellent crust to filling ratio! The pie definitely cracked the Nutella code. Filling dense and intense. Maybe better as a mini tart because one small piece is quite a lot. And I rated it a 4 overall because I wouldn’t want to go to all the trouble of making a pie only to have people think I just opened a jar of Nutella.  Suggestion: Just make it for yourself and don’t share.

Tammy
Crust:     5  Buttery and sweet. Very much like a shortbread.
Filling:   5  Oh my Nutella is the essences of sweetness and pure joy.
Overall:  5  This is the perfect pie. If you love chocolate, but you don’t want a fluffy
chocolate (like in a pudding or mousse) this is pie is for you! Need I say
more? I agree with Robyn it is totally worth making just for yourself. lol

 

 

 

 

About Tammy

Blogging was not around the first 30 years of my life. Back in the old days, blogging review about something. Usually the person writing this review was a professional in their field. Since than blogging has changed how we share and learn information. Today bloggers are not necessarily professionals. They are usually ordinary people which want to share what they were impressed by or that have changed their lives. With trepidation I consulted my friends about being a blogger. Their first question was invariably, why? At first, I could not articulate why. Finally, I realize it was three events that happened to me within a month that led me to create this project. Please indulge me, and follow my train of thought as I attempt to connect the dots.create your own world. We've created a set of roleplaying First, over the summer I participated in a role play site. Within this site, there are hundreds of plots you can write for. Once you choose a plot you create a character profile. Then with other writers you collaborate on a storyline that supports the plot. I love this process. Not only did my writing improve, but fills a void I have when I’m not writing. Unfortunately, the story lines never last long enough and I’m left wanting more to write. Secondly, my husband believes we live on this vast farm. Through the years he has cultivate an enormous dwarf orchard which provides not only enough produce for us but also for ALL our neighbors, friends and family. The reality is we live on a normal size lot in the middle of a city. Nevertheless, we pick buckets and buckets of pears, cherries, apples, kiwis, plums and figs. Sadly, when I make pies from our abundance the only people around to eat it….is us. We honestly do not need the extra calories so I considered not baking any more pies. Than this project developed where I could share my pies. Thirdly, for the 3rd or 4th time I’ve watched the movie “Julie and Julia”. I have always marvel at how Julie makes herself this challenge of cooking every recipe (524 to be exact) from Julia Child’s “Mastering the Art of French Cooking." cook book all in one year. No matter her obstacles she preservers. For years I have secretly admired Julie. I’ve often wish I had the courage to do what she did. So because I don’t have enough to do in my life. Why not start a blog about something? After bouncing what seem like a million ideas I came up with this crazy project. A blog about pies. Tammy’s Pie Lab Sigh…… so my blog is about pies, pies and more pies. Here are my plans. I have picked the most unusually dessert pies I can find. As you can see this is not just a blog but also an experiment. I am going to cook one pie every week for a year. I have eight pie tasters that will critique each pie. To prevent any preconceived notions of how the pie should taste. I will withhold the pie’s name until after it is critique. Then I will post the history, the recipe, and the critiques of the pie. In addition, there will be some experiments, countless websites to explore and everything you wanted to know about pies and more.
