1 crostata



  • 1 ½ cups all-purpose flour

  • 2 tablespoons white sugar

  • 1 pinch salt

  • ½ cup cold butter, cubed

  • 3 tablespoons water

  • ¼ teaspoon vanilla extract


  • ½ cup white sugar

  • 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour

  • 5 small apples - peeled, cored, and sliced


  • 1 tablespoon white sugar

  • ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon


  1. Combine 1 1/2 cup flour, 2 tablespoons sugar, and salt in a large bowl. Cut in butter using 2 knives or a pastry cutter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs.

  2. Mix water and vanilla extract together in a small bowl. Stir into flour mixture, 1 tablespoon at a time, until dough comes together. Gently roll into a ball and flatten slightly. Wrap with plastic wrap and chill until firm, about 30 minutes.

  3. Toss apples with 1/2 cup sugar and 3 tablespoons flour in a large bowl.

  4. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

  5. Roll dough out to a 12-inch circle on a floured work surface. Transfer to the baking sheet. Arrange apple slices in the center of the circle, leaving a 2-inch border all around. Fold up border over apples, pinching together slightly.

  6. Combine 1 tablespoon sugar and cinnamon in a small bowl. Sprinkle over apples.

  7. Bake crostata in the preheated oven until crust is golden brown, 30 to 40 minutes.

Cook's Notes:

Do not substitute margarine for the butter.

You can add cinnamon to the apple mixture if desired.
