Avril writes to share her love of baking - and cooking - along with other crafty ventures. Creativity in and out of the kitchen bring her joy. Me, too! I've been craving dessert for the past few days and decided that this was the perfect reason to crank up the oven and toss some flour around. I started with Avril's recipe for Apple Crostata and made a few changes. I used pears instead of apples, reduced the sugar, and added ground cardamom. I also skipped the crumb topping and the vanilla ice cream. But I will, as she did, serve this for breakfast tomorrow.
