Lemon ice cream is a diva—it has to be the star of an á la mode duo—so we’ve paired it with a rustic blueberry crostata that’s not fussed up with too many other flavors.
Make Ahead Tips
The crostatas can be made up to 1 day ahead and stored on their baking sheets at room temperature, covered loosely with a clean kitchen towel. Just before serving, warm the crostatas on their baking sheets in a 200°F oven for 10 minutes.
In order for the ice cream to readily melt and mingle with the crostata, either the crostata should be a bit warm from the oven or the ice cream should be slightly soft. If you’ve made both elements ahead and the ice cream is very hard, let it sit briefly at room temperature.

Is there any reason to make 2 crostatas? It says "serves 8," so does that mean each crostata serves 4? Confusing.
