Rustic Fig and Raspberry CrostatasIn my on-going effort to become a better baker (I'm tryin' Sis!) I could not resist this great looking recipe from Fine Cooking Magazine. Our local farmer's market blessed me yesterday with lovely fresh figs and raspberries.

Rustic Fig and Raspberry Mini Crostatas - Fine Cooking Recipes, Techniques and Tips
|Figs, raspberries, honey, fresh thyme, orange zest, sugar...oh my!|
|Ready to assemble, crust rolled into 5" rounds (roughly!) Set on parchment and sprinkled with crushed graham cracker crumbs to absorb moisture from the fruit|
Mound fruit mixture in center and wrap 'em up!
(yikes...I need practice folding!)
Oh, and don't forget the butter...and a slight sprinkle of sugar.
A little cream...and wow! These little rustic pies are full of flavor, the crust is light and with a slight crunch on the edges, the fruit, so intense and beautiful...the only question, should I eat it or paint it?!!
