{Upside-down Berry Crostata}

One of my favorite shows on the Food Network is Everyday Italian. I have made sooo many recipes from that show and they are all delish, this is where this recipe came from. This is such a wonderful dessert! And perfect all year round. You can use fresh or frozen berries depending on the time of year it is. So yummy!

Dough:
1 1/2 cups flour
2 Tbs sugar,
1 lemon, zested
1/4 tsp salt
10 Tbs butter, chilled and cut into small cubes
3 Tbs ice water

Filling:
5 cups fresh or frozen mixed berries. (If using frozen make sure and thaw out)
2 Tbs sugar
1 1/2 Tbs cornstarch
1 lemon juiced

For the crust combine flour, sugar, lemon zest and salt in a food processor and pulse to blend. Add butter and pulse until dough resembles coarse meal. Add ice water 1 Tbs at a time and pulse until moist clumps form. Gather the dough into a ball and flatten into a disk. Wrap in plastic wrap and refrigerate until firm, about 1 hour. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Stir together berries and lemon juice, sugar and cornstarch in a pie dish. Roll out the crust and place on top of berries and fold over itself until it fits. Cut 2 slits in the center. Bake for 40 minutes. Serve with homemade whipped cream.
