Blueberry Crostata with Lemon Ice Cream

Once again, I am sharing one of Andrew’s great summer desserts.   Surely one of summer’s great pleasures are its fruits and berries, especially when they are local.   And what can compare to any fruit dessert coupled with ice cream, especially when it is homemade.  I like to think that Andrew ought to be getting a cut out of the sales of Cuisinart Ice Cream Makers he has recommended to friends.  At $60, you can’t imagine how much pleasure you’ll bring to summer when you buy one.  It’s the best possible rainy-day activity for young children.  It’s not a bad one for grown-ups either.  And the creamy perfection of pure, simple homemade ice cream makes anything else taste somehow not as good, and truly store-bought.
