Cranberries are a rarity, even to this day, in Italy, so this crostata represents an achievement that’s uniquely Italian-American. Though many crostatas employ jam, this one gets its zest from fresh cranberries cooked down and paired with an almond-scented crust—and the proportion of filling to crust is perfection.

Sophisticated and simple.These macaroons are easy and gluten free. I fill my macaroons with sorbet and keep them on hand for a stylish dessert or snack. You can also fill them with the chocolate-mango ganache for a smooth, creamy center.
