Made up this recipe when I needed to take a dessert to my Bethany group yesterday – and it was quite yummy! Pretty simple, too. I based the crust on the one for that fruit tart.
Mix 1 stick softened butter, 1 cup flour, ~1/3 cup powdered sugar, and 1/4 cup water in a bowl with a fork. Add flour as needed until it all comes together in a non-sticky crust – maybe about another 1/2-3/4 cup flour. Press crust thinly into glass pie pan and up the sides.
Mix 1 jar peach jam (~8 oz? I used homemade), ~1/2 cup shredded coconut, and ~1/4 cup chopped pecans. Pour into crust.
Fold the sides of the crust down loosely onto filling. (Do a Google image search for ‘crostata’ to see how.)
Bake at 400 degrees for 25-30 minutes.
Dust with powdered sugar. This ALWAYS makes desserts look better, and people eat with their eyes before their mouths.
(Didn’t take a picture because it was eaten too fast.)
(Update 5/4: made it again. Pics are here.)
