Ready In:
1hr 15mins




  • Preheat oven to 375°F.
  • Place flour, salt and cubed butter into a food processor. Pulse until mixture resembles pea-sized crumbles. Add cold water 1 tbs. at a time until mixture forms a smooth ball. Set aside.
  • In a medium-sized bowl, gently combine nectarine slices, raspberries, blackberries, sugar, flour and lemon juice.
  • On a large baking sheet or pizza stone, sprinkle a pinch of flour and roll out pastry dough into a 16-inch circle.
  • Spread filling evenly onto pastry, leaving a 1 1/2-inch dry outside edge. Carefully pull up edge of pastry and fold over outside edge of the filling all around. Remember, it is meant to look rustic, so don't worry about perfection. Sprinkle outside edges of pastry with sugar.
  • Bake at 375 F for 40-45 minutes or until pastry is lightly browned.
  • Allow to cool for 20-30 minutes. Slice into eighths and serve warm.

<p>My name is Rebecca, but my family and friends call me Becky. I am&nbsp;33 years old and live in Rochester, New York, USA. I am a life-long resident of Western New York and can't say as I'd ever want to live anywhere else. I grew up on a small dairy farm in rural Western New York and love country living. Although my husband and I live in a suburb right now, we hope someday to move back to our roots and live a peaceful country life. <br /><br />My husband and I have been married for 10 years.&nbsp; We have a beautiful 5-year-old&nbsp;daughter and a 3-year-old&nbsp;son.&nbsp;&nbsp;I am amazed at how quickly our kids are&nbsp;growing and developing.&nbsp; I read a lot about and hold my own personal skepticism regarding the affects of additives such as&nbsp;preservatives,&nbsp;hormones, artificial colorings, artificial sweeteners, caffeine, allergens, etc.&nbsp; With the increasing number of children and adults with food allergies, I am suspicious that the last century&nbsp;of our nation's food industry improvements have contributed.&nbsp; I'm doing the best I can to protect my family&nbsp;from the risks, but it is difficult to avoid every additive.&nbsp; I have friends and family with food allergies and know how difficult it is to cope with food restrictions. I enjoy the challenge of&nbsp;cooking for those with food allergies but can't imagine making it an every-day affair.</p> 8727502"
