|Pear Crostata with Spiced Caramel and Candied Pistachios
This recipe from Emma Hearst and Sarah Krathen of New York’s Sorella is wonderful served warm and begs for a scoop of cool, creamy gelato. A spiced caramel syrup takes it to the next level.

|Apple and Cranberry Galette
This beautiful open-faced pastry, with scarlet cranberries nestled among golden apple slices, is a gorgeous dessert for a special meal. Because the fruit filling has been simmered before it goes into the oven, the galette bakes quickly and evenly.
