PEACH CROSTATA  for a printable version click here

1 refrigerated pie dough crust

4 peaches, sliced (keep the skin on)
1-2 nectarines
1/4 cup sugar
1 T cornstarch
1/2 tsp cinamon
1 egg
2 T butter
1 T sugar
Slice and pit fruit, no need to peel. Mix cornstarch and sugar.  Place fruit in a large bowl and toss with sugar/cornstarch mixture.  Press or roll out pie dough into a 10-12 inch circle.  Pile fruit into the center.    Dot the fruit with butter.  Fold up the sides of the dough, about 1 inch, pleating every few inches around the perimeter, forming the crostata.  Create an egg wash by beating 1 egg, then brushing it on the pastry.  Sprinkle the remaining 1 tablespoon of sugar over the dough.  Bake at 425 for 15-20 minutes, or until dough is golden brown.  Serves 6
