  • 1 In medium bowl, mix 1 1/4 cups flour, 2 tablespoons sugar and the salt. Cut in butter using pastry blender (or pulling 2 table knives through ingredients in opposite directions), until particles are size of small peas. In small bowl, mix cold water and vanilla. Sprinkle over flour mixture, 1 tablespoon at a time, tossing with fork until all flour is moistened and dough almost leaves side of bowl (up to 1 tablespoon more water can be added if necessary). Gather dough into a ball; shape into flattened 5-inch round. Wrap in plastic wrap; refrigerate about 30 minutes or until firm.
  • 2 On lightly floured surface, roll dough into 12-inch circle. Place on ungreased large cookie sheet.

Fold edge of dough over apple mixture; crimp edge of dough slightly. Mix 1 tablespoon sugar and the cinnamon; sprinkle over apples and dough.

Expert Tips

An updated version of the classic apple pie, this recipe combines two favorite flavors, caramel and apple. Instead of drizzling the caramel sauce over the top, why not serve the crostata on plates drizzled with caramel sauce for a show-stopping dessert?
