Cinnamon-Apple Crostata

I found a new recipe that looked easy and I thought would taste good.  I made it and it was a hit with everyone. I made it again the next day. Today my nephew, Joshua, made it. We are having it for dessert tonight!

  I hope you will try it! If you like apple pie you will love this!

Cinnamon-Apple Crostata

1 box Pillsbury® refrigerated pie crusts, softened as directed on box
1/2 cup sugar
4 teaspoons cornstarch
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
4 cups thinly sliced, peeled cooking apples (4 medium)
1 teaspoon sugar
2 tablespoons chopped pecans or walnuts
Whipped cream, if desired

  • Heat oven to 450°F. Remove pie crust from pouch; place flat on ungreased cookie sheet.
  • In medium bowl, mix 1/2 cup sugar, the cornstarch and cinnamon. Gently stir in apples. Spoon apple mixture onto center of crust, spreading to within 2 inches of edge. Fold crust edge over filling to form 2-inch border, pleating crust as necessary. Brush crust edge with water; sprinkle with 1 teaspoon sugar.
  • Bake 15 minutes or until crust is golden brown. Sprinkle pecans over apple mixture. Bake 5 to 15 minutes longer or until apples are tender. Serve with whipped cream.
