TAMPA (FOX13) - Chefs Ricardo Castro from Petit Piquant shares their Apple Crostata recipe just in time for Thanksgiving.
Apple Crostata (European Style Apple Pie)
Serves 8 People
Cook time: About 1 hour 20 minutes
-4 apples (2 Granny Smith 2 Macintosh)
-1/2 cup sugar
-2 T flour
-1 T lemon juice
-1 tsp ground cinnamon
-Coarse caster/sanding sugar as needed
Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
For the crust, you can use a purchased one or make your own one. Roll the dough to a 12-inch round, about 1/8 inch thick, on a lightly floured surface. Transfer to a parchment-lined baking sheet. Refrigerate for 10 minutes.
To make the filling mix together the apples, granulated sugar, flour, lemon juice and cinnamon.
Spread filling over dough, leaving a 1 1/2-inch border. Fold edges in to form a crust, brush with egg wash and sprinkle with sanding sugar.
Bake crostata until apples are tender and crust is golden, about 1 hour 20 minutes. Let cool slightly and serve.
