Simple Apple Crostata

 Good Evening!  I hope you are all well, healthy, happy and all the good things!  The holiday season is in full  force around here.  Blogging and YouTube are like retail you have to be 2 seasons ahead of the game!

December will bring you TONS of cookie and crafting videos!  Don't miss it, make sure you are subscribed to my YouTube Channel HERE!

I wanted to give you a little somethin' somethin' new for Thanksgiving.  It is super easy kind of "apple pie-ish" dessert.  Make it ahead, use homemade pie crust or don't, but this is so easy, it takes the same amount of time to whip out 2 as it does one!  If you don't need 2, freeze one for a quick dessert when you need one.  We all need dessert, let's just be honest about that!

Now a crostata is basically an open faced pie.  It usually has a lattice top, but who has time for all that, unless you want to?  If I wanted to do all the fancy stuff I would just stick with the pie version.  I mean you do you, but, I, did me this way!

Let's get to it.  Life is busy and to much chatter just keeps you on my website, looking at all of my recipes, oh wait....

For the crust you can buy store bought, or here is my EASY EASY, you can't fail pie crust recipe and it is SO good! PIE CRUST RECIPE

Here is what you need:

4 cups of peeled, and sliced apples.  I used MacIntosh

1/4 cup brown sugar *if you add more, nobody will know*

1 tsp cinnamon

1 TBSP cornstarch

1 egg, whisked

granulated sugar to sprinkle on the crust

Mix this all together in a bowl, making sure everything is coated well.  If you made a homemade crust, it will make 2 crusts.  Either half the recipe or keep that one in the freezer for later use.  Roll it out evenly.  Place your apple mixture in the middle leaving about a 2 inch border.  Now, fold the sides up over the apples.  So how easy?  Beat an egg and brush the curst and sprinkle some sugar on it.  Bake at 400 degrees for about 30-45 minutes.  When you crust is done, the crostata is done.  Depends on the thickness of your crust and so....just start checking when you can smell it!

Don't forget the ice cream scoop on top!  Maybe even a drizzle of caramel!  Lord give me strength!
