I grew up in Washington state, where blackberries are in every area possible. I have fond memories of picking blackberries with my mom and brothers, going home with buckets full of berries, stained fingers and lips.
This blackberry crostata takes me back to childhood. It’s so delicious, I could eat the whole thing! If you are lucky enough to have leftovers, it makes a great addition to breakfast!
For the dough:
1 1/4 cups unbleached all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon sugar
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
8 tablespoons cold butter, in pieces
5 tablespoons water
For the blackberries:
12 ounces fresh blackberries, washed and dried
2 tablespoons sugar
pinch of sea salt
Mix berries, sugar and salt and allow to sit while you roll out the dough.
