egg. Continue beating until light. Stir in flour. Roll dough on a floured

rack. To finish the crostata, arrange the fig quarters, cut side up, in
concentric rows, on the baked almond filling. Lace the raspberries here and
there between the figs and in the center of the tart. Just before serving,
dust with the confectioners' sugar.
