Quick Berry Crostata

4 cups berries (can be frozen, I used strawberries and blueberries) 
Zest of 1 lemon or orange 
1 tbsp honey 
1 tbsp cornstarch mixed with 1 tbsp water 
1 puff pastry rectangle, edges cut off to form a circle
1 egg 
1 tsp cinnamon 
2 tbsp brown sugar or turbinado sugar

Preheat oven to 375°F. 
In a saucepan, over medium heat, cook berries until juices start releasing. Add lemon or orange zest and honey. Cook for a few more minutes. Mix in cornstarch and allow to thicken. Remove from heat and let cool. 
Roll out puff pastry, to form large circle. Brush with egg and sprinkle with some cinnamon and brown sugar mixture. Place fruit filling in the center of the puff pastry and fold edges over to form crostata. 
Brush egg and add sugar mixture onto folded over edges. 
Bake for about 25 minutes, until nicely browned
