Crostata di fragole

This strawberry crostata is one of the simplest pies you can make!

Crostata dough enough for 1 pie shell
1 ½ cup amaretti cookies, crushed
2 cups strawberries, halved
2 Tbsp sugar

Roll out the dough over a pie mold. Crush the amaretti cookies with your hands and fill the pie with them. Set the strawberries on top of the cookie layer. Sprinkle with sugar and bake in a 375F oven for about 45 minutes or until the edges of the pie become nice and golden. The strawberry juices fill be absorbed by the cookies, so the strawberries might look a bit dry. If that happens, you could brush them with a bit of strawberry jam dissolved in a little bit of warm water.
