An easy and tart pie-inspired rustic dessert.
Prep Time: 5 min
Cook Time: 25 min
Total Time: 30 min
- 1 premade pie crust
- 3 cups peeled and sliced apples
- 1/2 cup granulated sugar, plus 1 tsp for garnish
- 2 tbsp apple cider
- 2 tbsp all-purpose flour
- 1 tbsp apple pie spice
- 1 egg, whisked
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Prepare a cookie sheet with wax paper and flour, or flour pizza stone (I have and love this one.). Roll out premade pie crust onto flour.
In a separate bowl combine apples, sugar, apple cider, flour, and apple pie spice. Mix until combined. Then, spoon apple filling to the center of the pie crust. Make sure to leave 2″ around the perimeter.
Fold over the perimeter, pressing to seal at corners.
Brush perimeter with egg wash. Garnish egg wash with additional sugar.
Bake for 20 minutes, or until crust is crispy and golden.
Crostata is best served with vanilla ice cream, fresh whipped cream, and a drizzle of caramel. Enjoy and let me know if you try it!
