I made this last night...very good. I had a problem with the crust being large enough. I think it would have been easier to fold over if I would of rolled it to make it larger. I had extra apples left over.

This sounds delicious, and easy. I'm looking forward to making it. I'm curious about the crust, though. The ingredient list calls for "a box" of Pillsbury pie crusts, (which would be two pie crusts) but it seems as though only one crust would be necesary. I'm wondering if perhaps there is a double layer and that's why some people were able to move the crostata after baking and others were not. Can anyone provide an answer on this?

I received so many compliments and asked for the recipe I was amazed. It is a really easy recipe and I even used a little Calvados (apple brandy) in own to "spice" it up. Wonderful!! Try it!!

This crostata was very easy to make and it was delicious. We really enjoyed it. I did find that 4 apples was too many. The next time I make it, I will decrease the number of apples.

I bake a lot of pies, but wanted to try this recipe for something a little different. It was so easy, and really delicious! Everyone raved about it. I am glad that I had a cake lifter to get the crostata off the baking sheet. Placing the baked crostata onto a fancy Christmas dinner plate made for a nice presentation. Served it with ice cream...YUM!

I loved this recipe. It was quick and easy to make. I made it this Thanksgiving and I was surprised by how much everyone loved it! I am a mother of two little ones and I do not bake very often but this is the first time something came out so perfect!

I make this using Splenda as a substitute for sugar for my friends and family that are diabetic. They love it.

Delicious, easy, lower in calories than double crust. Interesting variations to try: add plumped golden raisins, craisins, substitute a pear for one of the apples, or add a touch of fresh nutmeg. Also, add a teaspoon of fresh lemon juice to perk up the apple flavor a bit. Using parchment paper is an excellent suggestion.

This was very simple and very tasty. I had read other places that you should put orange zest in the apple mix to make it more authentic. I added about 2 tbsp and could taste the zing every few bites...so good! My family will be making again soon!
