Amazing Apple Crostata
There's an Italian restaurant famous for their family-style eating. You'd think something as simple as apple pie wouldn't be as decadent or exotic as this, but you would be very, very wrong. I'm not a dessert lover but I took one of these home and ate it even after it was all soggy from melted ice cream and savored every morsel. There are no words for how good this is. This crust is to die for!
Recipe Summary test
You can use 1 tablespoon water and 1 tablespoon lemon juice in the crust if preferred.
For a thicker filling, add 2 tablespoons flour to the sugar-cinnamon mixture. Increase cinnamon if desired.
Increase dough recipe by 1/2 for a crust that covers the apples entirely. It is best topped with vanilla ice cream when crust covers all apples.
Consider making 2 to 3 smaller, dough-covered crostatas with recipe if topping with ice cream.
